Form & Verdict

Looked rejuvenated by switch to current stable when winning twice over hurdles in December but finished last of eight in 1m4f AW handicap at Southwell last month (first Flat start since 2020) and his current ability in this sphere is hard to gauge.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from 20 starts under both codes but he finished well to go close back on the Flat at Wolverhampton (1m6f) last month; didn't get the best of runs in that tactical race and he's a big player back up in trip.

Sole win in 21 starts came over 1m6f on turf, but he has finished runner-up in both starts since returned to the AW and looked unlucky not to win when beaten a neck over 2m here a fortnight ago; up another 1lb but still a major player.

Form & Verdict

Improved his record to 2-15 when scoring at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) in February but he's not easy to predict and was disappointing when favourite at Wolverhampton (1m6f) last month; still looks feasibly treated and now goes back up in trip but he comes with risks attached.

Recorded his second win when scoring at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) in February but he's not easy to predict and has been well held in last two runs; still looks on a workable mark but he needs to find more on this drop back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Won in first-time cheekpieces here (1m6f) last November but he's finished tailed off in three runs since, most recently at Southwell (2m) last month; now back on his winning mark but he needs a major turnaround back at this track; stablemate of Escarpment.

Scored in first-time cheekpieces at Chelmsford (1m6f) last November but he been beaten upwards of 23l in all four starts since; now 1lb below his winning mark but he needs a refitted cheekpieces and first-time tongue-tie combination to spark a major turnaround back on turf.

First-time cheekpieces seemed to make enough of a difference for him to get off the mark at Chelmsford in November (1m6f); poor form in two starts here since, however, and an unknown quantity going without headgear back from a break.

Form & Verdict

Not one who has immediately clicked for his new connections but better signs when third over 1m6f at Wolverhampton and 1m4f at Kempton in February; looks worth a try at this new trip and he's respected dropped in grade after a short break; first-time cheekpieces replace a visor.

Well beaten after racing too freely over 2m in first-time cheekpieces this month and now 0-11 but was third on consecutive AW starts in February (1m6f/1m4f; visored on latter occasion), and ought to be suited by this stiff 1m2f on slow turf; visor refitted today; contender if back on song.
