J: Clifford Lee

T: K R Burke

10-11 when last of six on debut last April and that's the only time he's raced on turf (soft); absent 255 days before the four runs on AW, including clearcut wins in a 1m maiden and 1m2f handicap; not discredited last time but needs overall improvement on this return to turf in a warm race.

Form & Verdict

Good strike-rate of 6-14; soft ground a valid excuse for his return and then saw off an in-form rival at Pontefract (1m4f, good to firm) five days ago, for which he carries a penalty; that might just soften him up in this stronger race; has form here.

Progressive last season when the tongue-tie went on, landing a hat-trick, and the steady pace was against him when fourth at Leicester in October when last seen; this 4yo is open to further improvement this term and he's 2-2 here (both over this trip, including on good to soft); one to consider.

Progressive 1m2f form last season but the campaign finished with a poor run and this one hasn't got off to the best of starts (1m1f/1m4f); now has something to prove following wind surgery.

Underperformed when having a go at 1m4f on two of his last three starts; progressive at 1m2f otherwise last season and competitive if back on song straightaway this term.

Form & Verdict

350,000euros yearling; useful maiden in Ireland (same colours) and lots to like in how he went about his business when making a successful stable debut over C&D last month (first-time hood); up 6lb for that but there could be a lot more to come from him.

First and second under Archie Young on previous two visits here; consistent in the main and came from well off the pace to prevail over this far at Chester last time, which can take some doing there; raised a fair 3lb and Young returns with his 7lb claim.

Enhanced his good Chester record there in May (1m2f, good to firm); comfortably held off this mark at Epsom since but good chance he'll bounce back and Wolverhampton exploits bode well for his first visit here.

Five-time winner for Ralph Beckett; followed his second in the Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar with another solid effort on return to the AW at Chelmsford; arrives here in form but lack of Tapeta experience is a negative.
