Form & Verdict

C&D winner (good to soft) off 1lb higher last summer; also ran a fine race in a Class 2 event over C&D (good) in October when finishing strongly up the middle of the track; a most encouraging return to action at Wolverhampton 18 days ago when without usual headgear (back on today), dropped in from a bad draw but making up plenty of ground late on; lots to like.

Last season's sole success came over 7f on fast ground at Goodwood; fully effective on soft too but it's been a while since his last run over 5f and others look more appealing despite his solid record fresh and a good handicap mark to exploit.

Not had many chances on soft ground but he was placed in the Group 3 Cornwallis on it as a 2yo; ran a stormer behind a rapid improver at Newcastle on seasonal return in February but the two runs since have been less persuasive, albeit a bit better than the tenth of 14 would suggest in a messy Newmarket sprint two weeks ago; back down in grade and he's considered.

Both handicap wins came at Doncaster in 2022 (5f; good and good to firm); last season was disappointing but he steadied the ship when second at Newcastle on his return (5f) and a slow start was no help when behind a couple of these back there a month ago.

Has form on soft and heavy but likely better suited by a sounder surface; confirmed the promise of his Chelmsford reappearance by winning a Southwell handicap in good style in March; not seen to best effect at Lingfield last time but still looked in good form; still has some potential.

Two 5f wins as a 2yo; ran well on his return from 136 days off at Chelmsford, finishing second in a five-runner event in which the winner, third and fifth have all won since; major player off the same mark and with the run under his belt.
