Finally won a race on turf (15th try) over C&D last time by 5L (lost shoe and struck into) under a lady amateur having run well at Catterick the time before. Mark still below last winning AW one (73; has won off 95 in that sphere); still of interest.
Seen more as a hurdler these days and only seen once on the Flat this year when coming 4th at Catterick over 2m (looked a little one-paced). On a fair mark based on his best Flat form; made all to win at Musselburgh last year (2m) off 3lb lower.
Returned to form from out of the blue to take this race last year with his usual blinkers reapplied (just 1lb higher now). Only seen three times after that (not at all this year) and returns from a long absence with the ground quicker than he likes.
Three-time handicap winner when with Karl Burke (all in slightly lower grade) he looked to have been highly tried on his debut for this yard. Not seen to best effect really over a trip (2m) that stretched him and has more realistic claims here.
Went like the best horse at the weight on his penultimate start over C&D and duly delivered on that promise last time (ended a long losing run). Blinkers worn on his last two starts are now removed as he drops back in trip; should go well again.
Maiden who has yet to score in 16 starts and running below her usual modest form at the moment. Tried in first-time cheekpieces last time (retained here) but continues to show little and hard to recommend here.
