3 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict
0-11, but evidence so far suggests he is better on Tapeta than on turf and wasn't beaten far when fifth of 12 over C&D last time; frame material if building on that from 2lb lower.

Just 2-29, but she only went down by a nose off this mark at Ayr (7f, good) 11 days ago (due to go up 2lb); has won around here (8.6f) and respected down at 0-55 level for the first time.

Form & Verdict
Only 1-25, but twice finished third from much higher marks over C&D earlier in the year and his latest effort when beaten 3l into fifth of 14 at Thirsk (1m, good) wasn't a bad performance; each-way claims again.
