16:00 Beverley Wed 14 August 2019
Beaten 3½L when finishing third to Billy Roberts over C&D (good to firm) last month and boasts a respectable overall record (839422963) at this track; last win came in a 1m claimer on the AW at Newcastle.
Veteran; winner of 13 of his 128 career starts; raced sparingly on turf over the past few months and not overly competitive; will be of more interest once returned to Fibresand - winner over 1m at Southwell on New Year's Day.
3lb lower than when finishing second to Shawaaheq over 7½f here (good) in June; disappointing at Musselburgh latest and remains a maiden (0-8); tough task.
Finished strongly to score over C&D (good) in June, swiftly following up over a slightly shorter trip at Carlisle and Hamilton; higher in the weights now and below-par latest, but with C&D form figures of 2,1 rates as dangerous to dismiss.
Runner-up over 1m4f (gd/soft) on her last visit to Beverley and struck on her very next start at Redcar (1m6f, good to firm); tackled competitive races since; a prominent racer who may lack the speed for a battle with Langholm.
Unbeaten in two starts on the Westwood, making all of the running when winning a pair of Class 6 C&D handicaps in June/July; is ground versatile; 6lb above his last winning mark in a stronger race; place claims.
Spotted closing at the finish when fourth to Langholm over C&D (good to firm) in July; was very well supported when making it 3-3 on Tapeta at Newcastle (1m2f) last week (apprentices' handicap); holds an obvious chance off the same mark.
