Better on the AW than on turf, winning at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) and Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) late last year; second of six over C&D last month and possible excuses when fifth of seven back at Newcastle (1m4f) last time; each-way shout.

Form & Verdict

Has proved a revelation over 1m6f-16.5f on Polytrack/Tapeta since joining this yard and bids for a seventh straight win; was making his first visit here when winning in fine style over C&D a week ago and hard to oppose him despite his 5lb penalty.

0-6 having missed the whole of 2023, but he has improved as he has gone up in trip and only went down by a neck here (1m6f) a week ago; shapes as though he will stay this far, and may prove the best alternative to The Craftymaster with further progress a possibility.

Low-mileage 6yo who was placed over C&D before going close over this trip at Southwell; disappointing when stepped up 2m back at Southwell latest but he's a contender on his 1m6f form; fitted with first-time cheekpieces.

Handy sort who is lightly raced for a 6yo after just five starts; has shown major improvement in two handicaps at Wolverhampton (1m6f, Tapeta) since returning from 16 months off in January, including when third of ten there 11 days ago; respected with the possbility of further improvement.
