5 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Essentially disappointing for Tim Easterby last season but he's slipped to a good mark and 5f on slow ground looks ideal; rider's 10lb claim helpful and although he's been off for 166 days, he needs a market check.

Reliable ten-time winner who is fully effective over C&D; shaped as though the run would bring him on when in midfield here (6f, heavy) three weeks ago; should be in the thick of it.

Went very close over C&D (good) last August and won at Redcar (5f, heavy) in October; this 9yo can be in the shake-up if fully tuned up, but previous reappearance evidence suggests he'll improve for the run.

Capable front-runner on his day and he won four handicaps (two over C&D) in a productive 2023 campaign; lots of other pace to deal with today but he's drawn highest and could grab the stands' rail if the field head that way; others preferred on his return all the same.
