17:00 Catterick Wed 10 July 2019
3lb above her last winning mark; kept on well from the rear (met trouble in running) when finishing just over 2L third to Rux Ruxx in a Class 4 C&D fillies' handicap nine days ago.
14-race turf maiden (1-12 on the AW); finished tenth of 11 over 6f at Pontefract (good) on his most recent start; now 3lb lower; is strongest over 7f.
Won a pair of French claimers (6f-7f) last September but well short of the required standard on both starts for his current trainer; eased a further 6lb by the assessor.
Effective on most ground conditions and usually brings his 'A game' to the table when turning out at Catterick (three-time C&D winner); 12lb lower than when placed behind a stablemate over C&D last October; has recent form with Billy Wedge.
Finally off the mark at the tenth attempt over 1m at Musselburgh last week; carries a 5lb penalty for that neck win (beat the revitalised Cliff Bay with Donnelly's Rainbow third); stable in red-hot form.
Hasn't won since his debut in June 2016 (0-26 since); that said, he has raced solidly in defeat on his last five starts (23243); is 6lb better off with the re-opposing Lappet for a 2L defeat at Musselburgh last week.
Won this race from a similar mark in 2018 (for David Barron) and struck for Katie Scott when forcing a dead-heat at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) in May; some work to do with Lappet and Donnelly's Rainbow.
Ten race maiden (was with Richard Hannon as a juvenile); 0-4 for current connections, falling 9lb in the weights since April; finished behind today's rivals Billy Wedge and Our Charlie Brown at Thirsk (7f) latest.
C&D maiden winner for Ed Dunlop in July 2017 but has totally lost the plot since and is now rated a whopping 26lb lower; visor applied seeking a total transformation in fortunes.
Justified favouritism when scoring on the AW at Newcastle (1m) in February, and although running creditably in defeat since holds few secrets from the handicapper; stumbled badly at the start at Ayr (6f) on Monday; visor applied.
