Form & Verdict

Wins have come in early summer, twice round Brighton, and he has his moods; first-time headgear is the possible angle with him but he can pull hard and whether a slog in these conditions is ideal (done most racing over shorter) is questionable.

Seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpieces when winning at Windsor (1m, heavy) in October, and ended last season with another good run on heavy ground; resumes on a fairly tough mark, though, and may not be seen to quite the same effect on the quicker surface here.

Issues at the start and with pulling hard in early runs and has been expensive to follow, going backwards since entering handicaps; didn't see out 1m2f on rain-softened ground last time but is running out of excuses.

Has shown ability in his last three starts and did well to finish third of ten on handicap debut at Bath (1m, good to soft) last time given that he didn't enjoy a smooth trip; could make an impact on AW debut, though he could do with breaking better than he has been.

Turned over three times as favourite since handicapping but doesn't look to do much wrong and her latest Sandown second has been boosted by the winner since; the drop back in trip won't hurt and she's shortlisted.

Has spent most of the season running over 1m2f, often from the front, but will do well to lead down in trip with other pace in here; otherwise it's tended to be one good run, one bad and it's hard to know what to expect.

Wins have come over 1m2f, latterly off 3lb lower, and has done all racing over further since handicapping; is at home in these conditions but there's nothing to suggest he's best caught fresh, which is off-putting back from a year off; watch the market.
