Form & Verdict

Stepped up on his Yarmouth debut (good to soft) when finishing second of 11 at Kempton (7f) in August; only fifth of 13 there since but his fading can probably be put down to having to use up plenty of energy to get across from a wide draw to lead; the obvious danger to Individualism.

Eulace Peacock

9st 11lb

J: Rob Hornby

T: Andrew Balding

Six-race maiden who has proven consistent rather than progressive; ran creditably over 7f at Wolverhampton on last month's return and makes his handicap debut at a realistic level; promise on soft; respected for a yard in good form.

Five-race maiden; consistent form in second half of 2023, again making running when head second of nine at Newcastle (6f) in November; likely to make another bold bid from the front.

0-4, best efforts when placed over 7f at Kempton (AW) and Newmarket; shapes as if this return to 6f will suit (first attempt since debut) and sets the form standard, albeit not a daunting one.

Form & Verdict

Showed up well when third of 13 on his 6f Pontefract debut (good to soft) 16 days ago, sticking at it as though this step up to 7f could suit; open to improvement.

Backed into 4-1 when keeping on for promising third on last month's debut at Pontefract (6f, good to soft); open to improvement now tackling 7f and he's one to consider on his second start.

Second foal; dam unraced half-sister to French winners Tasleya (6f 2yo) and Adabeyaat (7f/1m1f) out of dual French 7f Group 3 winning sister to Lowther winner Silk Blossom; could be interesting if at all strong in the betting.

Best effort when second of 11 at Ayr (7f, good to soft) 23 days ago and the winner and third boosted the form when scoring at Redcar last Saturday; sets the standard.

Ran well at Wolverhampton in November (second run) but he's failed to build on it since, beaten double-digit distances in two handicaps; tongue-tie now given a go.

A fourth over C&D in November stands out from the rest of his runs like a sore thumb; blinkers failed to help at Newcastle between Christmas and New Year and have been quickly discarded; others are more solid.

Easily his best run was the middle of his three, in a 6f maiden at Wolverhampton last month on which he's not badly handicapped; needs to tap back into that promise now handicapping and perhaps the blinkers will work.

Verdict

The form of INDIVIDUALISM’s Ayr second was boosted when the first and third took both divisions of the 7f novice at Redcar last weekend so Charlie Johnston’s runner is preferred to Eulace Peacock. [Andrew Sheret]
