Promising individual. 2 wins from 3 runs this year. 4/5, won 6-runner nursery at Ripon (8f, good to soft) 18 days ago, storming clear. Up 12 lb but that may not be enough to prevent the hat-trick.
Career best when winning 9-runner minor event at Salisbury (8f, good to soft, 8/1) 16 days ago, sticking to task. Makes handicap debut.
Winner at Sandown on third outing in August. Good second of 5 in nursery at Kempton (8f, 13/8) 14 days ago.
Course winner. 5/1, seventh of 9 in nursery at Doncaster (7f, good) 10 days ago, weakening when hampered.
Thrice-raced maiden. 11/10, second of 7 in minor event at Ripon (8f, good to soft) 19 days ago. Makes handicap debut.
Given considerate ride p0n debut and improved when winning 10-runner maiden at Musselburgh (7.2f, heavy) 24 days ago, suited by increase in trip. Makes handicap debut.
Winner at Thirsk in August. 3/1, good second of 11 in nursery at Thirsk (8f, good to soft) 15 days ago, running on. Consistent but this is a deeper race.
Pythagoras (13/8), Recovery Run (16/5), A Boy Named Ivy (13/2), Heights Of Abraham (8/1), Intello Boy (8/1), Longlai (11/1), Diamond Haze (14/1)
PYTHAGORAS has been notably strong at the finish for both wins, proving his opening mark to be all wrong at Ripon 18 days ago. The assessor has reacted with a 12 lb rise, but that may well be within his compass. This is a tightly-knit nursery, with Recovery Run and Longlai feared most.
