Form & Verdict

Front-runner who made it two wins in a row when winning 7f nursery here (heavy) last August, and returned to winning ways on reappearance over this C&D (soft) last month; had just four rivals to beat last time and he's 5lb higher in this hotter race, but every chance he'll make another bold bid.

Has to concede weight all round but he's 3-5 on soft/heavy going and one of the wins came at this venue (7f); likely to stay 1m and holds solid claims with conditions in his favour.

Comfortable win on debut at Redcar (7f, good to firm) last September and went close in novice races the next twice (7f/8.3f, AW/good), most recently on comeback at Epsom last month when keeping on well after being denied a clear run; could have more left in the tank and his useful half-sister Dubai Crystal showed her best form on slow ground; interesting handicap newcomer.

Well backed when easily making a winning debut at Redcar (7f, good to firm) last September and may have paid for taking a keen hold when beaten a neck under his penalty in a Newcastle novice (7f, AW; 4-9) in November; this longer trip should suit and he is high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Four runs last year, showing improved form on final occasion when winning sales race at York (7f, soft); below par on last month's reappearance at Newmarket (7f, good) but faced tough task in that conditions race and he could be a player now back on slow ground for his handicap debut.

Disappointing at Carlisle (1m, good to firm) last month but failed to settle and went off hard before fading; promise on his two previous runs over this C&D (good to soft) and at Thirsk (7f, good), when closely matched with Sailthisshipalone each time, and he's not ruled out each-way now back at 7f.

Best form has come on AW and he was well beaten on his sole run on slow ground; merely fifth of seven in a handicap at Chester (7.5f, good) a fortnight ago but it wasn't a bad run and perhaps the track didn't suit; could be on a good mark based on the form of his maiden win at Kempton (7f, AW) last month and he's not written off.

Not quite at his best in French Listed race last November when last seen but prior to that he kept on for a good third in the Group 3 Horris Hill at Newmarket (7f, heavy), and on that evidence he has potential now up in trip on his handicap and seasonal debut; he's one to consider.
