21:00 Bath Wed 10 July 2019
German soft ground maiden winner over an extended 1m early last year but has shown very little for this yard over a variety if trips so far. Undergoes another headgear change (blinkers replace cheekpieces); mark falling others more persuasive.
Yet to win a race and modest enough but has posted a couple of respectable efforts of late when finishing third over a shorter trip here, also at Yarmouth (1m6f). Mark eased again, expected to be thereabouts although a stiffer test would suit better.
Dual course winner last year (one success over C&D), slips back below his last winning mark, ran respectably over shorter here last time. Showed on his previous run over C&D that this test suits him better; holds primary claims at his favoured venue.
Gained a second career win at Lingfield (AW) in May off this mark over 2m springing back to form; failed to quite match that performance since apart from a second (penultimate outing). Fairly treated, part to play if he produces his best form.
Surprise 25-1 winner when scoring over C&D to record his sole victory so far last September. Not disgraced after that over a variety of trips; ran no sort of race over 1m4f on reappearance at Chepstow; others have more solid claims.
A record of 0-21 is probably enough to ward off any potential backers with a whole string of AW runs this year producing limited performances bar one glimmer at Kempton in February over 2m. In essence he's only modest at best; out of sorts currently.
Irish raider who travels here with a 1-22 record but was a fair handicapper at his best. The impact he's made since 2017 has been very limited at best, little chance on current evidence but a market check is still advised.
