Inconsistent and hasn't won on turf for a good while but he was runner-up in a 7f handicap at Doncaster last month for the second year running; could have an edge in fitness and won't mind returning to further.

Wolverhampton winner early last year who scored in some style at Windsor (1m, good) this month but was disappointing under his penalty at Pontefract (1m, soft) six days ago; not quite sure what to expect after that; stable also runs Visibility.

Form can be up and down but he went close at Doncaster (7f, soft) last month then easily made all at Windsor (1m, good) last Monday; 5lb penalty is unlikely to stop him if he can reproduce that latest form.

Form & Verdict

Rattled off a hat-trick at Brighton last summer (7f-1m, all on good ground); nearly brought up the four-timer on soft (again at Brighton) and had perhaps had enough when below par on his final start; lacks a run and it's pretty clear that a return to Brighton will be on the agenda at some point.

Form & Verdict

Completed an AW hat-trick over 7f-1m in late 2022 and he's lightly raced for a 6yo; however, has a long absence to overcome and needs to prove he can do it on turf; was due to run at Newbury last June but he broke out of the stalls and was withdrawn (11-2 at the time).

Missed all of 2022 after showing plenty of ability in France as a 2yo (with give underfoot); can pull hard but that didn't stop him finishing a close third over 1m3f on the AW two weeks ago, and this shorter trip looks a good move.

1m turf win in France as 2yo on debut but missed 2022 and has not made a significant impact in handicaps in Ireland or Britain since; back up in trip and a case can be made but it's none too convincing.

Belatedly tapped back into his 2yo promise when winning a 1m Salisbury handicap with plenty to spare last September (on good to soft; second run in cheekpieces); 6lb rise is fair and he has the potential to rate higher.
