Form & Verdict

Five-time bumper/hurdle winner who is 0-10 on the Flat; well beaten having raced wide at Wolverhampton (1m6f, Tapeta) five days ago (Three Dons fourth), but had previously finished third in three consecutive starts here including over this trip; claims if recapturing that sort of form in the returning visor.

T: L J Morgan

Five-time bumper/hurdle winner, who got off the mark on the Flat when forging clear at Southwell (2m, Tapeta; 13-8 favourite) last month; a 4lb rise for that smooth win looks fair and he's a big player again on this drop back in trip.

Three bumper wins and two over hurdles within the first seven starts of his career, but 0-19 under both codes since; third in three outings at Southwell (1m4f-2m) since the blinkers went on and another place may be his best hope.

Placed in all three starts since joining this yard, the latest when beaten less than a length at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) last month; record over C&D reads 1415332 and he looks the one to beat dropped slightly in grade.

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.

Form & Verdict

1-20 though placed in all four starts this year since the visor went on, including twice over the sharp 2m at Lingfield; latest third of six at Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) not his best effort, but still makes the shortlist in an uncompetitive race.

Runner-up a couple of times on Polytrack (1m5f/2m) this year but he's finished a well-held third in last two starts; new headgear is tried on this drop back in trip in trip but he's now 1-21 and others look stronger.

Out of the frame in all five starts, the latest in a 0-50 classified event at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) last month; blinkers removed after one use; big step up in trip will need to make a dramatic difference.

AW winner in France as a 3yo, but having spent most of his subsequent career over jumps (2-34) he has struggled on Tapeta in his last three outings; up in trip with a visor replacing cheekpieces, but hard to recommend.

Sole win in 15 starts came at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) last September and is still 4lb higher; well held on his recent return from 136 days off here (1m3f) and needs to step up; still has stamina to prove; stable won this last year.

Sole Flat win at Newcastle (12.5f, Class 6) last September; flattered by proximity to winner when runner-up on course hurdles debut (2m4f, soft) last November; next start - sixth of ten, beaten 31l - reportedly came too soon; only modest recent Flat efforts and one of three for Brian Ellison.

Sole win (14 races) came over 1m4f on the Tapeta at Newcastle last September; runner-up on hurdles debut at Sedgefield in November was followed by a flop over that same C&D one week later; absent since but her peak form (that win) gives her a shout.
