Switched stables after finishing fifth at Chelmsford (7f; standard) in August 2016. Too many risks attached as he makes his return from 1051 days off the track, conceding weight to all his rivals.
Teofilo gelding. Half-brother to an AW winner over 1m2f. Made just 6,000gns at the sales in October 2018 and hard to know what to expect as he makes this belated debut.
Doubtful runner after being beaten a long way into fourth at Beveley (5f; good to firm) on Saturday.
Sent off at 50-1 and ran accordingly when sixth on debut at Newmarket (1m; good) last time. Would need to step up by some way on the basis of that effort to trouble the leading contenders in this.
Unable to justify market favouritism when third at Catterick (7f; soft) last time. That was disappointing but soft ground possibly to blame and debut effort over C&D was full of promise, so probably too early to write him off.
Has proved incapable of threatening in three starts in maidens. Interesting that his trainer is persevering with him in maidens now that has been given a handicap mark, but is very hard to fancy on what he has shown so far.
Ran nowhere near the level that was expected on seasonal bow at Newmarket (1m; good to firm) in April. Something was evidently amiss though as she hasn't been seen since. Should be given another chance as she looked a promising sort beforehand.
