15:00 Brighton Wed 7 August 2019
Well beaten in three starts since returning from a break. Market support would be notable having won off higher marks in the past.
Had just one start since finishing 11th of 12 over 1m4f on the AW at Lingfield in December 2015. Probably best watched on stable debut following over three years off the track.
Good 1L fourth in a handicap over an extended 1m3f at Lingfield (good-to-firm) in May. Disappointed upped to 2m4f at the same venue subsequently and this trip more suitable.
Placed twice in May including over 1m6f at Yarmouth (good-to-firm). Held in two subsequent starts and visor worn last time out is absent for this contest.
Struggled in two starts since registering a victory in a 1m4f seller at Wolverhampton in June. Others hold stronger claims.
Dual winner in 2017 including over 1m2f at this venue. Fair 8L fifth over 1m2f here last start and cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are left off on this occasion.
Ended time with previous yard by finishing runner-up in a 1m1f handicap at Carlisle (good-to-soft) in June. Cheekpieces tried for the first time upped in trip on stable debut following a break.
Well beaten on two most recent outings including in first time blinkers (cheekpieces return here) over 1m at this venue last month. .Stamina to prove over this distance.
Finished third on each of his last three starts including in a similar race to this on the AW at Lingfield (1m2f) a fortnight ago. Likely to play a leading role stepping up in trip on return to turf.
Struggled on two most recent starts including when beaten 26L over 2m at Chepstow (good-to-firm) last time out. Drop in distance no issue.
Failed to shine when 11th of 14 in a 1m6f handicap at Chelmsford early last month. Returning from a break and a spell hurdling that day and others make more appeal.
