Form & Verdict

Won a 1m AW novice for this yard three years ago and was later placed in Group races, including the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot; was returning from 256 days away when down the field in a 1m4f handicap at York last May on his sole run for William Haggas (same ownership; first-time tongue-tie) and now returns from another layoff; wellbeing is clearly an issue.

J: David Probert

T: Sir Mark Todd

Placed in Group/Listed races in 2021 (including on good ground); below par in light 2022 and also on sole 2023 run; returned with comfortable front-running handicap win at Bath recently (1m2f, heavy); today's task is considerably tougher and he has something to find with the principals, but he may get an easy lead if latest tactics are repeated, which can count for a lot.

Has a long absence to overcome but he was nicely progressive when last seen during the backend of 2021, showing good form over 1m2f/1m4f on ground ranging from fast to soft; dropped in the weights and it makes sense to let the market guide.

Won here in 2021 (1m2f, good) and, after missing 2022 and 2023, he returned with a staying-on third at Bath (1m2f, heavy) 16 days ago; the bounce factor may be an issue of this second quick start back, but there was plenty to like about his comeback run and he's well treated on old form.

Won on soft as 2yo; showed promise in a hot race at Glorious Goodwood on reappearance and has built on that with 1m2f wins at Windsor and Epsom in two of his three starts since; raised another 6lb but he came from last (of seven) to first last time despite hanging badly down the camber and looks well worth this second attempt at 1m4f.
