Form & Verdict

Form & Verdict
Off the mark at the 11th time of asking when keeping on resolutely to win a 7f handicap here 13 days ago (7f, good to firm); second and third there have run well since and a 2lb rise looks generous; 1m should be well within her range; leading claims.

Ran quite well in first-time cheekpieces at Newbury (1m, good) last month but he couldn't quite back it up at Wolverhampton 16 days ago; stable have had a couple of recent winners and he remains capable of better.

Twice finished third last month (1m and 1m2f) and he would be a contender on those efforts; two runs this month have been bitterly disappointing though and headgear is now reached for.

Limited encouragement at two and he pulled far too hard here (1m2f, good to soft) on his seasonal and handicap debut last month; John Egan replaces a 7lb claimer today but still easy enough to have reservations about.
