Form & Verdict

Course winner; prominent racer; better than ever when winning a 1m2f handicap at Bath in August (good Topspeed figure); ground perhaps too slow when last seen six weeks ago; has to prove her stamina for this trip but the Bath win does offer hope that she's still well treated.

Made all to win a C&D novice one year ago; two solid efforts to begin his handicap career and took form to the next level when making all in a Class 5 event at Newbury when last seen in July (1m4f, soft); 7lb higher mark demands more and he's not the only prominent racer on show.
