Sometimes front-runner; 317-day absence before this season, during which his second at Windsor and third at Newbury have been his best efforts, both over 1m2f on soft; upset in the stalls and withdrawn once in July; edging down the weights but may be vulnerable to an improver.

Made all for 6l success over C&D two weeks ago, taking record at Nottingham to 2-2 and record on soft/heavy to 3-5; should cope with going back up 6lb and holds very strong claims kept to same scenario.

Sometimes front-runner; below form during a light 2022 campaign but returned from 317-day absence with second of seven at Windsor (1m2f, soft) in May; upset in the stalls and withdrawn on his next intended start, before a backward step when favourite in returning cheekpieces (absent since May 2021) eight weeks ago; none too solid.

Form & Verdict

Admirably consistent this season, including with four wins from July onwards and he resumed his improvement on last two starts when running away with Legends Race at Doncaster (1m, good to soft) and following up in 15-runner amateurs' race at Newmarket (1m1f, good); his first two wins were at 1m2f but he has a lot more to prove on soft or heavy ground.

Highly productive run of form on the Flat this year from 1m to 1m2f (pretty useful form) and he continued the good work on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) where his jumping improved as the race progressed; holes in the form can be picked (runner-up was behind Eagle Prince the time before) but he wasn't remotely troubled; some doubts about him on soft ground.

The best of these on the Flat and has been in really good form of late, with form figures of 221134112 since July (from 1m to 1m2f); should go very close if taking to hurdling.

Patchy profile since winning 1m AW novice in January and soundly beaten at Salisbury (1m, good) three weeks ago when back from 163-day break; however, he made some late headway and could improve for both that run and this step back up in trip; not discounted.

Fair form on all four starts, runner-up twice in small fields on turf (once on good to soft, unraced on worse); needs better than he showed on handicap/AW debut last time but has been dropped 3lb.

No great shakes on the Flat; placed in both completed starts over hurdles, behind the very smart Burdett Road first time out and then 9l off Royal Way at Ludlow; better off at the weights with that rival and drying conditions are probably a good thing on handicap debut.

Flat maiden but showed promise; had a subsequent winner behind him when no match for the talented Burdett Road at Huntingdon (good to soft) and the heavy ground proved all too much for him in a Listed race at Aintree; should be a factor back down in class under more suitable conditions.

Form & Verdict

Displayed clear promise in all three qualifying races, before winning a five-runner race at Ffos Las (1m4f, soft) three weeks ago on handicap debut; 6lb higher today, having drawn just over 5l clear for the win, but could easily have more to give and that proficiency on soft boosts her case.
