All three wins have come on AW tracks but his best turf performances have come with some cut in the ground. Nicely weighted with a good claimer on board, but he needs to break better than on his last three starts. Blinkers tried here.
Showed much improved form over this trip last time when going down fighting and clear of the third. That effort and his Lingfield victory show he handles some cut.
Typical late developing sort from this yard who escapes a penalty for a facile C&D success. Had a fair bit in hand that day and will take some beating under a claimer who is good value for his allowance.
Only limited ability shown so far but bred to do better the further he goes. This looks more suitable for his handicap debut, but he still has plenty to find.
Improved effort when fourth to an easy winner at Ripon. Opening mark looks workable and top apprentice secured to ride. Looks interesting with the stable in such good form over the last week.
Modest looking filly but one who will be better for her Lingfield return. Hard to see how the handicapper has arrived at his current assessment.
Has made little progress since her debut in May and tackles a new trip today. Blinkers worn last time are removed.
Nathaniel gelding who cost £190,000 as a yearling, but made just £12,000 as an unraced three-year-old in November, 2017. Those reasons look apparent judged on his five runs since and veteran trainer faces a real challenge
Showed a bit more last time but a lot more still needed on handicap debut over a trip which will test her stamina.
Travelled well for a long way on handicap debut over 1m2f. Was briefly outpaced before staying on again so worth a try at this trip.
