9st 10lb

J: Kieran O’Neill

T: Alice Haynes

Habitual front-runner who battled well to prevail by a short head over 1m here last month; should be okay back at 7f but has wide draw today and recent 2lb rise might be enough to leave him vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Exposed six-time winner who very nearly won again in a 1m handicap at Ayr two runs ago, while latest effort at Pontefract wasn't too bad either; strong form claims in this company.

Three successes on Tapeta since December and bids for a hat-trick after winning twice at Wolverhampton (8.6f); up another 3lb, but a bigger problem may be that he seemed to find this an inadequate test when fifth of nine over C&D in February.

Proved suited by the switch back to Tapeta (from Polytrack) in similar event over C&D two weeks ago, beating Soames Forsyte and taking overall record to 8-49; likely player back up just 2lb.

Sole win in 16 AW starts came off 1lb lower at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) in December; has made the frame in all three previous outings over C&D, but this looks a competive races of its type; cheekpieces the headgear of choice today.

Formerly with Brian Meehan, for whom he ran well on debut but it all went downhill afterwards; found a weak race for stable debut and a change of scenery may have done something for him.

Eight-race maiden who has gone the wrong way over a variety of trips since finishing second on his debut for Brian Meehan at Newmarket (7f, good to soft) last April; look elsewhere.

Initial promise for Brian Meehan, notably when runner-up to Covey in a 7f Newmarket maiden last April; yet to threaten (0-2) for this doubly represented trainer and takes a sharp step up in trip here to compete beyond 9.5f for the first time; continues to ease in the weights.

A fair maiden at his best for Brian Meehan who wasn't disgraced for his new yard when third of five in 1m Chelmsford seller last month; he needs to follow it up back in handicap company.
