Form & Verdict
Close third in useful 6f conditions race at Wolverhampton (back from a break) on Boxing Day; not in the same form when fourth of six to Zip in 7f Newcastle handicap since but his good overall AW record suggests he won't stay down for long.

4-12 on the AW, proving equally effective over 6f and 7f; has finished fourth and second in the last two runnings of this (went down narrowly last year) and will be a danger to all, especially if allowed to control things from the front; not seen in 106 days but has won after a layoff.

Absent since a below-par run for the Crisfords last May (gelded since) and he changed hands for 25,000gns in August; this lightly raced Tapeta winner makes his stable debut off a competitive mark for a new yard in fine form; interesting, especially if well backed.

OR: 95

Form & Verdict
Drew a blank in 2022 but his mark edged down as a result and he won quite comfortably over C&D (first run on Tapeta) on his return from a short break 16 days ago; 3lb rise looks more than fair (won off 1lb higher before) and he should make a bold bid to follow up.

0-6 on turf but he has a very solid AW record and resumed winning ways at Wolverhampton (7f) on Boxing Day under Alec Voikhansky; that form is solid (runner-up second to Tiger Crusade here since) and he should remain very competitive after a 4lb rise.

Easily landed a novice here (6f) in February and looked unfortunate not to double his tally when beaten a neck into third of ten at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) last time (Ernie's Valentine second); each-way claims at least, especially if reacting positively to the cheekpieces.
