Form & Verdict

Unexposed 3yo who was an easy winner of C&D novice in September and things didn't go his way on his handicap debut here (close fifth of nine) last month; should get a better tow into this race and he still has untapped potential; interesting contender.

Blew his mark early with wide-margin handicap debut win as 2yo but despite that he had useful turf form in 2023; in the thick of it on Tapeta elsewhere and Polytrack of late; no reason why he shouldn't handle this track on first attempt and likely to be bang there.

Ran well in a big field at Ayr (6f, good to soft) in July but he's not matched that form since; made some late headway when a respectable fourth over C&D last time but was behind Haziym in that race and his losing run is mounting up; others preferred.

Backed on his return to turf at Thirsk (5f, heavy) last week and just missed out, going down by a short-head with the first two pulling 6l clear of the third; his head went up in the air under pressure there and it looked one that got away but he's 4lb well in and he's run well at Ripon before.

Came from well back to spring a 66-1 surprise over C&D last month but he was only eighth of nine back here 11 days later; still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form but he's hard to predict and comes with risks attached.
