Form & Verdict

Did well in competitive Racing League handicaps around 1m at the end of last summer, including a win at Windsor; wasn't at his best in final two runs last season but he's been gelded since and he's now only 1lb higher than for his win; went close on his seasonal return last year and he needs watching in market after six months off.

J: Tom Marquand

T: Richard Spencer

Wore cheekpieces on last five outings, including wins at Windsor (1m, good to firm) on first occasion and Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) on reappearance last month; asserted in good style when favourite in the latter, so is one to consider, but he's 8lb higher today which demands further improvement.

Form & Verdict

Both wins came on turf in the spring of 2022 but he's run respectably on Tapeta (1m/7f) in his two runs for new yard this year; continues to edge down the weights and he shouldn't be far away back up in trip.
