Signalled a return to form last time when this headgear combination helped and remains competitively treated. Would prefer a sounder surface however.
Picked up cheaply having originally cost 400,000 gns as a yearling. Scored on stable debut at Wolverhampton and best run since also came on Tapeta at Newcastle. His other starts leave something to be desired and new trip a further worry.
On a going day he is a strong travelling type that is generally played pretty late and he hit the front too soon last time. Remains below his last winning Flat mark and underfoot conditions are in his favour.
Fair Flat stayer for Roger Varian who was developing into a useful hurdler until a heavy fall in October. Off since and likely this is part of his rehabilitation with some of the decent autumn hurdling prizes in sight.
Winner of three AW races when stepped up to 1m4f. Handicap mark has suffered since finishing second at Newbury and his pedigree does not suggest he will stay this far.
