Form & Verdict

Never nearer than at the finish after starting slowly over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last time when trying the hood and cheekpieces together for the first time; wearing only a hood hasn't done much for him in the past and he's hard to win with.

Comes here on the back of some good efforts on the AW (1m4f to 2m) but he's never been placed in ten starts on turf, which reduces his appeal.

Not prolific but he's consistent and 2m on this surface is up his street; can hit a flat spot so today's stiffer finish (unraced here) should work in his favour.

Doesn't win too often (2-30), but has slipped down the weights and, in the main, has fared broadly okay (twice placed over 2m) since returning to the AW; his most recent Newcastle effort wasn't his best though, so he has some work to do with Eagle's Realm; a possible.

Her four wins have been at middle distances but she's a versatile type who has been placed numerous times since July including a good second over 2m at Ripon on her penultimate run; returns for new yard after three months off but this switch back to Tapeta is no problem and she's in the mix.
