Form & Verdict

Sole win as 2yo in Ireland; bobs between 1m2f and 1m4f and this is his first run beyond the latter trip but he kept on at the same pace despite getting bumped over 1m4f at Southwell recently (little between him and Artisan Dancer) so perhaps the step up in trip is worth investigating.

Belatedly regained the winning thread at Wolverhampton (upped to 1m6f; off 4lb lower) this month, benefiting from drop to Class 4; faces a stiffer assignment back up two grades and, with strike-rate only 2-23, looks unlikely to follow up.

Five wins at 1m3f to 2m since August (the latest over C&D in February) and has hardly run a poor race in that time; another stout effort when going down narrowly at Southwell nine days ago (1m4f; closely matched with Howth) and looks sure to go well again.

Won three minor hurdles last August-October (good or good to soft) but was pulled up in a Taunton handicap when conditions were in his favour and it was just an okay run back on the AW three weeks ago; no obvious significance in the return of cheekpieces and others are far more intriguing.

Three AW wins include one over C&D but on a losing run of two years and he hasn't looked ahead of his mark on sand since back from an absence; refitting headgear needs to make a difference.

Can lead; chase winner in August who nearly sprang a mighty surprise in his first AW handicap, when just touched off at Kempton in November (2m); highly tried next time but was close up at Lingfield (2m) last month and had Tapeta form at the start of his career; not dismissed.

It's not all been plain sailing in his nine-race career but he's 2-2 at Wolverhampton, latterly in 1m4f handicap at turn of the year (Night At Sea keeping on in fifth); that display suggested he'd stay further, which he failed to prove over 2m at Lingfield two weeks ago but he ran respectably and looks a leading candidate back at this track.

The two wins from his four starts at Ayr were both more than two years ago, but he also ran creditably over C&D last September; downhill since his Musselburgh win this April, with the switch to a visor (replacing regular blinkers) perhaps contributing last time; reverts with headgear today and he's 4lb below his last winning mark.
