Best effort since switching to handicaps came when runner-up in a four runner 1m6f handicap at Lingfield (soft) last time out. Interesting runner back down in trip.
Ran well to finish 1L second over an extended 1m3f at Haydock (good-to-soft) in June. Fair form twice subsequently most recently when fourth in a novice race over an extended 1m4f at Chester (soft) last month.
Returned from a break with a 22L seventh in an eight runner classified event at Nottingham (good) early last month. Hood tried for the first time.
Put a heavy defeat on handicap debut behind him when finishing 13L fourth over 1m4f at Lingfield last month. Returning from a break that day and is one to note with cheekpieces worn for the first time on that occasion retained.
Well held seventh on stable and seasonal debut at Nottingham (1m2f, good) in June and it was a similar story back in novice company over this C&D last time out. Interesting in what looks a weaker contest.
Fair 9¼L fifth in a handicap over an extended 1m3f at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) last month. Worth a check in the market with blinkers worn for the first time.
Good 3L third in a 1m4f maiden at Catterick (good-to-firm) last month but struggled when tailed off on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) recently. Interesting having run well in a novice race here early last month.
Disappointing in three starts since being gelded including when 14L tenth on handicap debut at Kempton last month. Blinkers worn for the first time that day are absent stepping up markedly in distance.
Well held in four starts for previous stable most recently on handicap and seasonal debut at Chepstow (1m4f, good) last month. More needed on debut for a new yard.
Signs of ability when seventh over 2m at Catterick (soft) in June. Drops in trip following a heavy defeat over the same trip at Beverley (good-to-firm) last time out.
