Form & Verdict

Won twice at Lingfield (1m, AW) late last year and has finished in the frame in all three handicaps on turf since returning in April, the latest when fourth of seven at Newmarket (7f, good) three weeks ago; the first three haven't done much for the form since, though.

In the frame in all five starts last year; failed to beat a rival on his Lingfield return (7.6f, good) a week ago but met all sorts of trouble, so that effort can be forgiven; worth a second look for stable that won this with the useful Jimi Hendrix for the same owners two years ago.

Dual AW winner over 6f/7f but 7.6f seemed to stretch him when fourth of seven at Chester (good) last month (Dashing Darcey third); stepping up again in trip has to be a concern.

Has shown fairly useful form on AW, winning twice as a 2yo and creditable third in both runs this year; however, faces a stiffer task in this grade returned to turf and back from three-month break.

Made it 2-6 when winning a Wolverhampton handicap (7f) in December and he did well to go close from off the pace in a tactical race at Lingfield last time; on same mark here and he's a key player.

Form & Verdict

Looked a nice prospect when winning his first two starts last summer and although he hasn't added to that, he didn't enjoy much luck here in his last two outings, particularly over this trip a fortnight ago; capable of making an impact granted a clearer run.

Won last summer on first two starts (6f/7f, good/good to soft) then down the field in Sandown Group 3; ran well when fourth of seven on recent handicap and seasonal debut at Beverley (7.4f, soft); needs improvement today, but still considered.

Looked one to follow when easily winning a Doncaster maiden (6f, good) last summer; well held in three starts afterwards, albeit facing stiff tasks in the first two and meeting trouble in the third; returns from eight months off having been gelded; market may be revealing.

Did well in two starts as a 2yo, winning at Southwell (7f, AW) and going close at Redcar (7f, good), but having been gelded he has been a bit disappointing this term and was behind Dashing Darcey at Newmarket (7f, good) three weeks ago; more needed.

All three starts over 7f, winning on the Wolverhampton AW last October and an encouraging third of 11 on turf debut at Carlisle (good to firm) 19 days ago after seven months off; this extra furlong should be within range and she's still open to improvement on handicap debut.

Narrowly off the mark at Chelmsford (7f, AW; first-time hood) last November, but was minus the headgear when well held in a Newcastle Listed contest (1m, AW) in March; makes his handicap debut after another 71 days off having been gelded and the hood makes a comeback; possibilities.

0-6 last year but some good runs in defeat (including on turf) and, having been gelded, he reappeared with a win in a Southwell maiden (1m, AW) last month; fair fourth when back in a handicap at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last time, when his run was slightly checked; might not be far away.
