Form & Verdict

She has won on turf but the AW seems her thing, winning five of her eight starts (two seconds and a fourth in the other runs); two Wolverhampton wins over this trip last month, making all on the second occasion; this will require further progress but that can't be discounted.

Winner of 7f AW novice in October and he never saw Just A Spark coming when headed close home in his first 6f handicap, at Kempton in February; weights turnaround favours him but improvement needed if he's to win at this level back on turf for the first time since his French debut.

His two runs back from a nine-month break have been full of promise, going down narrowly over C&D in February and then finishing sixth at Wolverhampton last month, dropped in from a wide stall and making good late headway; that looked a strong race at the time and the subsequent wins of the second and third give it some ballast; still not fully exposed.
