Form & Verdict

Unexposed 3yo whose novice form, which includes a success at this venue (1m, good to soft), has worked out well; far from disgraced at Ascot (1m2f; wore hood) on handicap debut considering the race didn't pan out favourably (could have done with stronger pace); should do better still and warrants respect back here.

Solid record at novice level, with 1m Hamilton win flanked by a couple of seconds on AW, and all of the form is working out very well; bred to be suited by this new trip; hood applied; strongly respected.

260,000 yearling; plenty of promise when beaten a neck on his debut here (7f) in June (form worked out well) and had little trouble in justifying odds-on at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) last month; major player for stable that won a division of this race last year.

Form & Verdict

Beaten narrowly by Cockalorum over C&D in August; comfortably beat his rivals at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last Wednesday, ending a losing run that stretched back to his 2yo Listed win; not ordinarily an obvious type to follow up but holds a good chance under 5lb penalty provided he's in the same form again.

Won comfortably at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last September on fourth stable start and he remains well treated on his old form; he ran pretty well on his final two starts last season but needs something extra if he's to win this competitive handicap on his return to action.
