Form & Verdict

Showed he retained a good chunk of ability when landing a 6f handicap at Kempton from a wide draw on his penultimate start (second run for this stable); had too much use made of him when trying to dictate from stall 12 in a warm Kempton handicap 15 days ago and that isn't the run to judge him on; better berthed today and probably doesn't have to lead, especially back over 5f.

Prominent racer who won a couple of sprint handicaps for Charlie Fellowes in the latter part of 2023; sold for 75,000gns last month but made a low-key stable debut at Newcastle five weeks ago; other pace to contend with here and he looks vulnerable again.

Has shown good form in sprint handicaps since returned to AW, winning twice (3-6 in this sphere overall); respectable third at Lingfield when last seen and subsequently sold out of Charlie Fellowes' yard for 75,000gns; one to consider on stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Impressed at Goodwood in August, winning the same 5f handicap for the third year in succession; goes well on AW too and he was back in form when third at Newcastle 13 days ago, short of room late on but looking held in third at the time; this is weaker but he will still need to raise his game a notch to record a third C&D win.

Not the force of old but that's reflected in his handicap mark (due to be another 3lb lower from the weekend); wouldn't judge him too harshly on last week's Newcastle sixth (not well drawn) but others still look stronger in this line up.

This winter's two wins have come at Lingfield but he has run well over C&D too; had a couple of today's rivals behind him when making all to win at Lingfield three weeks ago; 4lb higher and this might not pan out quite so favourably.

Form & Verdict

Promising last season, winning two 5f handicaps on turf and also running well over 6f here off a 9lb higher mark; looked to retain ability in the first half of the year but he was well short of that level twice in the space of four days in August; the tongue-tie he'd worn early in the year was left off for those two starts and it's back on today; interesting.
