Form & Verdict

Acts on soft, well beaten once very early in career on heavy; progressive last season, rounding off with a decisive Taunton win (2m3f, good to soft) in April; well beaten over 2m5f on both starts this autumn, with only a 2lb drop as a result and he needs to resume improvement.

Ended last season with a C&D win and returned to form with clear second over C&D (also good to soft) last month; has to take a 4lb rise on the chin but won't mind if the ground remains soft.

Signed off last season with a convincing C&D success off 6lb lower (good to soft; fine on soft); however, he'll need to leave his last two runs behind if he's to play a part.

Form & Verdict

Acts on soft, unraced on heavy; in good form under Harry Atkins this February-April, including getting off the mark at Hereford (2m3f, good to soft); badly hampered when pulled up in May when last seen and has since had wind surgery; probably needs a career best but he's in calculations.

1-16 over hurdles and 1-29 overall, the win coming at Catterick (2m3f) last February; not so good since, beaten 15l over C&D latest, but has another career-low mark and is not entirely dismissed with a hood (last used four runs back) restored.

Verdict

Testing ground is in the offing and BURROWS HALL (nap) therefore presents the strongest claims, which also include having run well in his two recent starts and coming from a stable which was 2-2 with its runners on Thursday. Fazayte has won on soft this autumn, which puts him just ahead of Immortal Fame and Kiss My Face among the dangers.[Richard Austen]
