- 7f 218y, Good to Soft (Soft in places)
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has been campaigned over 1m2f in France and won at that trip in April. May have needed debut in this country and now down in trip and class. Needs a check in market.
Made very heavy weather of landing prohibitive odds in Carlisle maiden but likely is better than that and should have more to come for his top yard.
A glimmer of ability in trio of maidens at 7f but opening mark now handicapping at further looks a tad harsh though worth monitoring in betting just in case.
Yet to break his duck but running really well and career best on similar ground on Wednesday when making an improver work hard to best him. Same mark in this weaker contest and looks sure to play a leading role.
Cheek pieces and visor tried recently and no real improvement for them and has to fully convince he stays this trip. Others preferred.
Did very well to overcome a poor draw at Musselburgh on latest and 3lb rise is pretty fair on that evidence. More to come at this trip and one for the short list.
Ran poorly on handicap debut when tried at 1m4f. Trainer quick to drop him in distance but hard to know what he's capable of despite low mark.
Best two runs have been with plenty of cut at around this trip the latest at Leicester on Wednesday but that was in a lower class race and needs more to break his duck in this grade.
One placed effort at Beverley this season but has regressed otherwise and others come here in better form so readily passed over.
Much improved when 4L winner of selling handicap over C&D last week on good ground. Up 7lb now in better race but clearly in good heart and does have form on soft.
Best run last season was on heavy. Not quite in the same form this term and needs to prove he stays this trip so bit to prove at present.
Lightly raced and standout effort was at this track over 7f but took step back only run since. Hopes rest on return to this venue and extra furlong sparking him into action.
Has tried different trips with little success. Now steps up to 1m but it needs to bring about plenty of improvement for him to figure.
11 race maiden who didn't convince with his stamina only previous try at this trip and others come here in far better form.
