20:15 Epsom Downs Thu 18 July 2019
Pushed out when springing a 14-1 surprise in a 1m3½f Class 4 Windsor handicap (good to firm) last month; a shade disappointing off this revised mark at Salisbury (1m4f, firm) on Saturday evening.
Consistent and reliable (5-23); is already a dual winner in 2019, although is yet to be tested beyond 1m2f; 3lb above her last winning mark; beaten less than 2L by Mr Scaramanga (Allegiant second - runs earlier) over 1m2f here a fortnight ago.
Hasn't won on the Flat since June 2017 although has plenty of placed form on his CV, including over 1m2f here last July (beaten 1½L by Liva); easing in the weights but generally unconvincing of late.
Nine-race maiden who has shown his strongest form on the AW, namely when runner up in a 1m4f Newcastle novice last December; well beaten in a peculiar race (winner gifted an unassailable lead) over 1m6f at Nottingham three weeks ago.
Exploited a falling mark when winning on 'home turf' over C&D (Class 6) a fortnight ago; 5lb higher for that comfortable 3L win (beat Queen's Soldier); rates as plenty more appealing than the majority.
