14:00 Brighton Tue 8 October 2019
Career best effort when finishing 1L fourth in a 7f maiden at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting contender under top weight on first appearance in handicaps.
Returned from a break to make a winning handicap debut over 7f on the AW at Newcastle last month. Has to defy a 6lb rise in the weights if he is to follow up.
Shown ability in four starts so far most recently when fifth over 1m at Chelmsford a fortnight ago. Worth a check in the market off a 2lb lower mark.
Victorious over an extended 5f on good-to-firm ground here in April and placed twice subsequently. Met with trouble in running when fifth at Leicester (6f, good) on handicap debut last time out.
Improving with racing and finished a decent fifth in a 15 runner 6f maiden at Newbury (good) last time out. Drawn wide stepping up in trip on handicap debut.
Best effort so far came when finishing runner-up in a good-to-firm ground novice event over C&D a month ago. Market support would be notable on handicap debut.
Improved on previous efforts when finishing fourth in a good-to-soft ground 7f novice race at Chepstow last time out. Likely more needed switched to handicaps for the first time.
Good 6L second in a 7f novice event at Epsom (good) on her penultimate start but failed to back that up when well beaten over 6f at Kempton last time out. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
First start since being gelded when finishing 1½L fourth in a handicap over an extended 5f at Bath (good-to-soft) recently. Also engaged 14:30 Pontefract Monday.
Beaten 9L when finishing third in a 7f novice race at Epsom (good) last month. Interesting to see how she performs on her first handicap appearance.
Placed third, beaten 6¼L in a 6f AW handicap at Kempton in August. Races off a 2lb lower mark following a disappointing effort over the same trip at Wolverhampton last time out. Cheekpieces tried for the first time in this contest.
Fair sixth in a 6f novice race on good-to-firm ground here in August. Blinkers tried for the first time on handicap debut following a heavy defeat at Kempton (6f) last time.
Failed to figure in four starts so far including on handicap debut at Kempton over this trip last month. Wears blinkers for the first time racing from out of the handicap.
