Form & Verdict

Comes alive at Ascot, successful in two Wokinghams, the Group 3 Bengough Stakes last autumn and when heavily backed for 16-runner handicap over C&D two weeks ago; this is a stiffer task but he was first home in the far-side group when fourth to Kinross 12 months ago; handles the mud; each-way claims.

Good 6f performer, especially at Ascot where he is a dual Wokingham winner (off higher marks); close fifth at Lingfield returned to AW on seasonal debut (4-11 in this sphere overall); won over C&D early in career and enters the reckoning.

T: David Evans

Has been a real money-spinner for this yard, winning two Wokinghams as well as three Group races; made a slow start to last season but he came good in the autumn, justifying strong support in a 16-runner handicap at his beloved Ascot in October; chance on that form but back from a break perhaps not the time to catch him.

Form & Verdict

Made an immediate impact on his debut for Archie Watson when winning the Wokingham (good to firm) over C&D and he ran even better when a close third in the Group 1 Maurice de Gheest at Deauville (6.5f, very soft) six weeks later; disappointing in Haydock Group 1 (40-1; slowly away) last time but he'll have no problem with today's conditions and could bounce back.

Better than ever since joining this yard, winning the Wokingham (6f, good to firm) on stable debut before close third in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest (6.5f, very soft; Spycatcher second); deserves extra credit for last time as he failed to settle and had to wait for a run; interesting.

Listed 2yo winner, also Group placed; retained plenty of ability in subsequent seasons for Roger Varian, including over C&D, but his two most recent handicap runs leave much to be desired; guesswork involved on debut for new yard with blinkers refitted.
