Consistency hasn't been his forte this year but the addition of a visor (had been wearing cheekpieces) saw him run very well at Doncaster 19 days ago, finding only a thriving rival too strong; 1lb rise less of a concern than his wide draw.

Four of his five AW wins were over C&D but he hasn't been here since October 2021; plenty of evidence this year that he is well capable of being seriously involved, albeit with the best of those runs having been over 5f.

Betting Forcast

12/1 Majeski Man, 6/1 Lost My Sock, 7/1 Melody King, 12/1 Roydmoor, 6/1 Phoenix Star, 10/1 Proclivity, 8/1 High Security, 8/1 Where’s Diana, 8/1 Latin Five, 20/1 Murbih, 10/1 Kendred Fire, 10/1 Buniann, 20/1 Just Another

Verdict

A trappy event. Buniann (second choice) is better on AW than turf but he could go well in a first-time hood. Stablemate Majeski Man drops to 5f for his stable debut but is still of some interest, while Proclivity could well bounce back from her latest disappointing run. MELODY KING offered a bit more at Nottingham six weeks ago though and he may prove the answer with a stiff 5f looking right up his street.[Paul Smith]
