Lightly raced now but he finally recaptured some form when runner-up at Uttoxeter in November (2m4f, soft; refitted cheekpieces, as today); may be on the way back and pedigree suggests he has a good chance of staying 2m7f.

Longstanding maiden (0-21); form has dipped since twice finishing third at Carlisle and Uttoxeter (both 2m4f) late last year; first-time tongue-tie accompanies regular cheekpieces in pursuit of the breakthrough; look elsewhere.

Inconsistent 12-race maiden; fair third at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) on her seasonal return in November but she's not gone on from that and was a remote third at Newcastle last month; now tries this new trip in headgear and she comes with risks attached.

5 yo Filly

Form & Verdict

Has shown a little ability in bumpers and over hurdles, without a serious impact; no extra after two out when fair fourth trying 2m7f on handicap debut at Hexham (heavy) 16 days ago and she may well come on from that run.

Fair in bumpers and she has shown similar form since sent hurdling, signing off with a staying-on sixth in 2m3f Carlisle novice in April; this longer trip should suit so she's one to consider on her handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Staying-on second in handicap chase at Warwick (2m, good) on penultimate start but also stays 2m5f and acts on soft; plenty of form suggests he is capable of getting seriously involved but it's hard to ignore that he is 0-12 over fences and 0-21 over hurdles.
