Form & Verdict

Largely in good form over the winter on the AW but he has failed to hit top form in a pair of handicaps at Ayr/York of late; it would come as no surprise to see him return to form here though.

Three-time AW winner over 1m4f last year; ran right up to best form when keeping-on second over the extended 1m4f at Newcastle a fortnight ago and should be okay back on turf; good chance.

A fair 2m hurdles winner but he's yet to show that form in this sphere, tried in cheekpieces when beating only one in 11.5f Bath handicap 22 days ago; this longer trip promises to suit but others still appeal more.

Showed no significant promise when a big-priced outsider for three maiden/novice races (8.4f-1m4f); has more realistic chance to get competitive in this grade but still makes only limited appeal.
