Form & Verdict

Has 1-15 strike-rate and goes without his usual blinkers/cheekpieces on first run since last October (wind op in interim); however, he was a good second off this mark on his final two runs for George Boughey (6f, including Polytrack) and can be in the shake-up if in similar form on this first start for a new yard.

Mixed form across her four winless starts for Alice Haynes and she refused to enter the stalls for Chepstow novice in August (11-1 at the time); however, the return to a sprint trip could suit this unexposed 3yo on her stable debut and she's not ruled out.
