8st 7lb

J: Franny Norton

T: Ian Williams

One run here early in career; had a very solid 12 months or so, including reaching new heights during a pretty busy AW campaign, before his disappointing no-show at Kempton five weeks ago; produced late to take a quite valuable handicap in tidy style at Lingfield (2m) eight days earlier but needs better off this 4lb higher mark and needs much better than earlier turf form.

Has had a very solid last 12 months or so and reached new heights during a pretty busy AW campaign since October, including at 2m over which he was produced late on to take a quite valuable handicap in tidy style at Lingfield (Polytrack; unraced here) eight days ago; up another 4lb but going great guns.

Won at Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) and Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in November and he's held his form well since, including a close second over 1m4f at Wolverhampton (Class 2) last month; didn't get much luck before finishing well in that race and he looks interesting back up in trip and down in grade.

Showed a good turn of foot to readily account for Aqwaam at Lingfield (1m5f AW) and that was on the back of wind surgery; 5lb higher now but won't be far away.

Still seeking his first win after 21 starts but he has finished second twice this winter, missing out by just a short head at Southwell last month (1m6f; blinkered for the first time); creditable third over C&D four weeks ago; each-way shout.

Respectable effort over 1m6f at Wolverhampton for previous yard in November but had two low-key runs for this yard, over hurdles and on Polytrack, and also needs to prove she stays this far; cheekpieces discarded.

Quiet in 1m3f-1m6f handicaps this season (tried in a hood latterly) but she showed promise in maidens last season and returns from a break with her yard in sizzling form.
