Form & Verdict
Joined this yard with a BHA rating of 99 but beaten in all 13 runs for them; leading claims on pick of his form in the second half of 2021 and also ran well in a big-field AW handicap in April; drops in class today and won't be found many better chances to end his barren spell.

Form & Verdict
Not stood a great deal of racing and his best efforts have come on AW; didn't run too badly in a 1m claiming handicap at Pontefract 12 days ago (good to firm); repeat of that would see him in the mix but he is facing a big rise in distance (stamina not assured on breeding).

Won two of his final four turf starts for Hughie Morrison, a 1m4f claimer and 1m2f handicap; sold 33,000gns since; has 5lb higher mark on AW so something to prove back from short break on debut for new yard.

Form & Verdict
Successful in a low-grade handicap hurdle at Hexham last month, his second run for this yard; similar form when sixth at Uttoxeter three weeks ago; returns to the Flat in a race in which all three runners have something to prove,
