Form & Verdict

Reappearance win took his AW form figures (6f/7f) to 121; two underwhelming efforts on turf (1m) since; still has something to prove in this sphere and first-time headgear needs to make a difference.

Two AW wins (7f/6f) from first three starts and remains very lightly raced, but he was a 6l fifth of eight on last month's handicap and turf debut at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) and needs to leave that form behind.

Lightly-raced 3yo; has won two of his three starts, all on the AW, last time making hard work of landing odds of 2-11 in a 6f Wolverhampton novice (first run after being gelded, third has since won handicaps off 50 and 55); not obviously well treated on handicap/turf debut but step up to 1m should suit and stable in fine form.

Form & Verdict

Ran well behind a smart rival at Yarmouth (1m, good) on seasonal debut; has not progressed since (beaten favourite on two occasions) and is in danger of becoming a frustrating/disappointing sort; however, addition of blinkers may do the trick on handicap debut; not written off.

Struggled in sole 2yo run but he showed plenty of promise with his second at Yarmouth (1m, good) and third at Chelmsford (1m, AW) in May; that latest form has been boosted by the first two since and he still has untapped potential; respected.

Both wins for the Muir/Grassick stable came over 7f on turf last summer, but patchy form subsequently; does stay this far and has run well on Tapeta, but something to prove on stable/Polytrack debut after six months off having changed hands for 23,000gns in October.

Front-runner who's well suited by easy courses and in good form on the AW for a yard also responsible for Mobashr; could probably have done without the weekend rain, though, and there's other pace in here.

Game effort from the front to win a 7f handicap at Chelmsford three weeks ago; returning to 1m won't hurt but there is other pace on show and a 4lb rise doesn't look that generous.
