14:05 York Sat 12 October 2019
Wolverhampton winner twice been at the mercy of the stewards having been disqualified after passing the post in front at Haydock and being demoted to third latest first time at 1m. Consistent sort and blinkers could be a big help; respected.
Gained a second win in four starts latest when landing a five-runner Doncaster 1m nursery. Upped 5lb so more needed but not ruled out for yard in fine form.
Left two ordinary runs behind when winning a 7f Redcar maiden last time out. More needed here but bred to improve hugely for extra 1f and further in time and has to be respected for one of the leading yards in the country.
Out of his depth in York sales race behind Mum's Tipple two starts ago before bouncing back in novice company at Chelmsford (7f) two starts back. Weakened into sixth latest at Newmarket on handicap debut but yard's flops tend to bounce back quickly.
Hamilton winner was third in his only previous handicap and is 2lb lower today despite two more respectable efforts the last twice. This looks a warm contest however so others appeal more.
One of just two maidens in the line-up, this son of Toronado has failed to build on the promise of his August second at Leicester and looks best watched here.
Switch to handicaps and 2f longer trip did the business latest for him as he came through strongly to win a Redcar nursery over today's trip. 5lb rise will make life tougher but very unexposed over this sort of distance.
Some promise along the way but remains a maiden after four starts and after an underwhelming effort at Ayr latest where he looked a doubtful stayer of 1m he is hard to fancy.
Finally got off the mark ay Thirsk but with 5lb extra to saddle he could only manage fifth of 10 at Ayr subsequently. Gets 1lb back but that not enough to think he's well handicapped.
