Entered Musselburgh 3.20 Monday. Won a decent Newmarket handicap from 5lb lower on penultimate start. Held in Listed company latest, but cannot be ruled out back at this level.
Goes on most ground and won on soft over C&D in 2015. 9lb higher today than when last seen winning, at York a year ago. More needed, given his record since, but has each-way claims.
Unexposed colt, who won a Newbury handicap (7f, good to firm), when 21lb lower in August. 4½L second back there in Listed company last time, which was an improvement. Up another 7lb, so more needed.
Triple winner over this trip this year, including last time at Ayr (heavy). 7lb rise will ask more questions and his CV suggests that he might have his work cut out in trying to provide the correct answers.
4lb higher than when last winning at Redcar (1m, good to firm) in August. A couple of runs since would place him high on short-lists here, but out of sorts on his last two starts and has a bit to prove at present.
1lb higher than when scoring at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) in June, in a Class 3. Has struggled to repeat that at this level since. More needed.
Goes into this 7lb higher than when winning at Newmarket (7f good to soft) in August. Well held in a couple of big field events since, both from 3lb lower than today, so more needed.
