Opened his account on his debut at Newbury (7f) but has been unable to add to that in five starts since then. Has struggled in his three handicap runs this season, with his latest effort coming at Sandown (7f) when sixth of nine. May need more help.
His sole success so far came in a novice race at Leicester (7f) last September. Has been well held on his two starts this season, including latest at Doncaster (1m) when fourth of six on first run since being gelded. Others preferred.
Was successful for the first time on his previous outing at Lingfield (7f) where he justified strong market support after going off as the odds-on favourite at 5/6. Up in trip and remains of the same mark. Leading player.
Remains a maiden after six races but has gone close on a couple of occasions, including two starts back when third of 13 at Carlisle (1m1f). Back down in trip after disappointing effort over 1m4½f at Chester recently. Each-way chance.
Broke her maiden at this distance last time at Haydock where she finished strongly to build upon some good form earlier this season. Up 3lb for that success but there is likely to be more to come from her. A great chance of following it up here.
