Pushed out when winning for the second time on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (2-2) in mid-December (1m½f claiming stakes); is more than capable of being positively involved in this Class 6 handicap if taking to the Fibresand surface.
Made all when winning a Kempton nursery (7f) on his final start for Mark Johnston; no extra deep inside the final furlong here (1m) on debut for Gay Kelleway subsequently (bought for £13,000); disappointing more latterly.
Seven-race maiden; was beaten less than 2L (third) by Surrajah at Chelmsford (7f) on his penultimate start - the actual worth of that form is questionable; was hampered at the start at Kempton (7f) on Wednesday; is making his Fibresand debut.
Much improved when springing a 33-1 shock at Newcastle (7f) in September; has continued in reasonable shape during the month of December - reeled in late on by the Mick Appleby-trained Speed Merchant here (6f) latest; holds an obvious chance.
A seemingly modest Casamento colt; lost his place from halfway on handicap debut here (5f) last week; on pedigree appeals as the type to do better over this longer trip; improvement required.
Disqualified (rider failed to draw the correct weight) after finishing second over 1m here on his penultimate start; turned over at short odds (10-11f) in a 1m classified stakes here on Tuesday.
