Form & Verdict

Won 1m Yarmouth novice on good to soft last September; no real evidence he's ahead of his mark this year, despite a somewhat luckless AW run behind Botas (1m) in August; however, his finishing hasn't been that strong over the trip on turf and AW since and looks up against it.

Yarmouth novice winner (1m, good to soft) a year ago and has run some good race since handicapping, especially since headgear went on; finished just behind King Cabo over C&D on his penultimate start (first-time blinkers), but may have finished ahead of that rival with a clear run; could be worth chancing.

Heavy-ground winner as 2yo; didn't have a great 3yo season but he took advantage of weights drop when winning at Chelmsford last month (1m2f) in a first-time hood; fair third over 1m4f since but perhaps the return to 1m2f back on turf will suit with refitted tongue-tie added.
