Has run at various trips this year with his best display coming last time out over 7f at Doncaster (has shown speed for 5f). Drops down to 6f here the trip over which is only win so far came; 3lb higher than last time though.
Two wins from three runs this year with the latest coming in commanding fashion and looking a sprinter on the up. Handicapper has reacted to his latest win though putting him up 9lb but looks as though he can cope with his new mark.
Won a novice on his first run for this stable (visor on for first time) over 6f on the AW. Not matched that run since in a couple of starts although he appeared to find the 7f stretching him last time (may have needed the run); off a career-low mark.
Has progressed steadily in his three completed runs (unseated rider second start) finishing 2nd each time (nothing wrong with attitude though). Now makes his handicap debut after running well last time and looks one to note in this sphere.
Stood still rather than improved through his juvenile career while still running some sound races. Improved for the switch to handicaps last time after a fair break looking as though the run would do him good despite being prominent in the market.
Dropped in trip (5f) and grade last time and was suited by neither; got outpaced and never threatened. Remains 7lb above his last winning mark and faces very different conditions to those testing conditions that win was gained in.
Ran her best race for this yard last time out despite the wide draw at Chester although she was competing off a reduced mark. Pushed back up 2lb for that run and yet to win a handicap and faces some progressive types here.
