Mixed bag this season but he has two 1m2f soft-ground wins to his name, including over C&D, and a 2lb rise for his recent Salisbury success seems fair; is one to consider.

Lost a lot of ground at the start at Chester three weeks ago so comes with a risk attached; however, she ran okay in the circumstances and was a good second at Sandown (1m2f, good) two starts ago; has won on soft ground and can be in the mix if getting away on terms.

Mainly running well since her successful return at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) in May, including when second of nine at Sandown (1m2f, good) last month; seems to handle most ground, but still 5lb above her last winning mark so needs to find a bit more.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 3yo who could be well handicapped in view of his juvenile promise; it's still early days but much better could have been expected when upped in trip on handicap debut at Kempton (1m3f, AW) in August; the hood adopted last time is left off here.

0-10 since his 2021 2yo campaign but this course winner has twice been a good second this season (1m2f/1m1f, soft), most recently at Goodwood eight days ago; wears a first-time visor and could be thereabouts.

Made all in Chepstow novice (1m2f, good to firm) in June on his third start and turf debut; this unexposed 3yo shouldn't be written off after just one poor run, but it's hard to be confident in his claims today following his disappointing handicap debut performance at Kempton (1m, AW) 17 days ago.
