Form & Verdict

Dual-purpose performer who won four times on the Flat (8.3f-1m2f) last year but he's a frequent slow starter and has been well held in his last two runs in this sphere; has won here in the past but he's still 3lb higher than for his last success and others are more persuasive.

Four Flat wins last year (including on heavy) and won in good style over C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago, when benefiting from the strong pace; a 5lb rise may not stop him if things fall his way once more.

1-9 over hurdles with the win coming in 2022 off 5lb lower; never dangerous from off the pace over C&D in November but ran well, as was also the case on his recent AW start (second over 1m); should get a strong pace to target and he's very much one for the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Easily landed a C&D novice in December 2022; returned to Tapeta with four good efforts in a row here (1m-1m2f) in the autumn and he had an excuse when dropped back to 7f last month; record now stands at 1-11 but he has possibilities if he can bounce back near best.

Three wins in 2023, including over C&D, but he's been out sorts on Tapeta in his last four runs; now 4lb lower than for last win but he needs to rediscover his spark; stablemate of Bashful.
