15:35 Ayr Mon 18 June 2018
Winner of three races to date including over 7f on good ground here just under a year ago. Drops markedly in trip having finished well beaten over 1m the last twice.
Narrowly beaten on soft ground at Doncaster (5f) on seasonal debut in April and put a disappointing effort behind him when a respectable seventh in a valuable handicap at Epsom earlier this month. Of interest in this contest.
held in three outings this year most recently over 6f at Thirsk (good-to-firm) a month ago. Has run well off higher marks in the past.
Placed on two of his five starts this term most recently when runner-up at Thirsk (5f, good-to-firm) a month ago. Disappointed last time but likely to fare better in this contest.
Beaten 1L on return to turf at Newmarket (6f, good-to-firm) last month and was beaten just a head over this trip on the AW subsequently. One for the shortlist with blinkers applied for the first time.
Not beaten far when third of four over C&D on good-to-firm ground last month. Disappointed next time and others hold stronger claims.
Placed in two races over this trip so far this year. Likely to appreciate the return to this distance having finish fourth over 6f last week.
Best effort since winning over this trip at Wolverhampton in February came when finishing fourth at Ayr (6f, good-to-firm) last time out. Likely more needed here.
