Form & Verdict

Looked a likely type for big sprint honours when overcoming adversity to win a competitive Newbury handicap on his reappearance/stable debut in April (6f, good to soft); flopped back at Newbury six weeks ago but he was messed around in the early part of that race and nothing got into it from off the pace either; too soon to write him off and he's a fascinating contender back on AW (2-2 on artificial surfaces).

Not so good as he was and his losing run has crept up to 16 but he has run with credit on his last three starts (including C&D); more minor money could be on the cards.

Form & Verdict

Looks a much better horse on AW, winning a Kempton nursery in emphatic fashion as a 2yo and going down narrowly at that track 17 days ago; that effort can be marked up, as he was set a lot to do and then made up a huge amount of ground in the penultimate furlong; up 2lb and facing older and stronger opposition but his ceiling on AW is yet to be established.

Hasn't looked back since switched to this venue, winning over 7f in March before two fine runs over this trip, winning as he pleased on the latter occasion seven weeks ago; up 6lb against stronger opposition but he's high on the list all the same.

Fairly bolted up over 7f here two weeks ago but that wasn't a comparable race to this; 8lb rise should be enough to scupper a follow up.

Back to the same mark as when seeing off 19 rivals in a soft-ground 6.5f handicap at the Curragh last July; promising effort at Epsom on Derby Day and last week's midfield finish in the Wokingham was creditable given the ground would have been quicker than ideal; has a good record over 6f on Tapeta and he's one to take seriously.

Four wins for Roger Varian and made an encouraging start for his new yard when staying on for fourth over inadequate 5f at Newmarket last month; no progress at Haydock three weeks ago (6f, good) but dropped 2lb for that and returning to AW could be a good move; others more appealing all the same.

Latest Haydock effort not the one to judge him on and this year's peak AW efforts bring him right into the reckoning off this mark; C&D winner; stall 1 a potential stumbling block but there is pace drawn nearby; only 1lb higher than when winning this race last year; contender.

Won twice as a 2yo for Donnacha O'Brien, including in Listed company, but after a bright start to his 3yo campaign he went the wrong way; sold for 22,000gns last October and gelded; starts out for new connections in a competitive event.

Won his only start at two and showed useful ability at three, notably a close fourth in a Newbury Listed race (6f, good); absent since finishing down the field in the 2022 Commonwealth Cup 743 days ago; gelded since; market should guide as to how much ability is intact.

Lightly raced 3yo who ran a fine race when second of 17 in a historically strong York handicap two weeks ago (6f, good to soft); 2lb rise to contend with but he's effective on AW and can't be discounted.

Made giant strides as a 3yo, notably winning the Great St Wilfrid at Ripon (6f, good to soft); back at that level when second in a soft-ground Listed event at Haydock last month before not getting home over 7f four weeks ago; not much room for error off this mark though and it won't be easy to dominate at this level.

Landed a gamble in last season's Ayr Silver Cup; two low-key runs to start this campaign but he was back to his best when seeing off 14 rivals at Thirsk last month (Class 4; well backed); out the back at York last time; this a rare AW run and others look safer.

Showed he was still capable of smart sprint form when seeing off 15 rivals in fine style at Doncaster in April (6f, soft); lacklustre effort at York's Dante meeting last month; C&D winner but others appeal more in today's field.

Won a Group 3 at Chantilly (6f) two years ago but lost his way last year and he made a quiet start for this yard over 7f at Doncaster when 40-1; a hood joins the tongue-tie added then; 2-4 on AW but this looks a warm race in which to try and revive.
