Form & Verdict
Steadily progressive last year and, having been gelded, he's won 1m2f handicaps at Redcar (good to soft) and Nottingham (heavy) in the space of eight days last month in his two runs this season; looked like winning by a fair bit further at one late stage in a four-runner race last time and this 2lb higher mark may well underestimate him.

Acts on any ground (second win was on heavy); 4-4 in 1m2f handicaps this season, last time having to wait for room before he grabbed a seven-runner race from Perfect Play at Ripon (good); none of those handicaps had more than eight runners and he's up another 5lb but he keeps finding more.

Acts on any ground; 3-3 since being gelded and upped to 1m2f, the most recent success at Haydock where he dug deep to collar a rival who dictated a steady pace; improving 3yo who commands respect upped in grade and taking on his elders for first time.

Form & Verdict
Similar form taking minor honours last August-September at Leicester (7f, good to firm), Goodwood (1m, soft) and Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW); has had wind surgery since and left Ian Williams (same owner); not nearly as stoutly bred as some in this, facing a step up in trip in first-time cheekpieces on handicap/seasonal debut.

Unable to win in these colours on the Flat but there was plenty of promise, notably when third in a 1m4f handicap at Salisbury (RPR 83); seems to go on most ground and should make a hurdler; cheekpieces sported of late are left off.

Showed plenty of ability on all six starts but no win, despite cheekpieces on all three runs this season, different tactics and varied ground; drops in class after his fifth of 12 in a valuable 3yo handicap at Newmarket (1m2f) 12 days ago; probably on the premises.

Form & Verdict
Second at Beverley (7.4f, good to soft) on reappearance; not so good in his two starts since, admittedly meeting trouble in running on his way through from the back in ten-runner race at York (1m, good to firm) last time but he did not make any dramatic late gains once in the clear; upped in trip but others are preferred.

Unraced on firmer than good; won 1m Yarmouth novice last September; visored first time and surged back to form when good second of 11 at Doncaster (1m, good) 11 days ago, always prominent; shaped as if worth a go at 1m2f and he probably needs to find extra against today's rivals.

Won 1m Yarmouth novice on good to soft last September; no real evidence he's ahead of his mark this year, despite a somewhat luckless AW run behind Botas (1m) in August; however, his finishing hasn't been that strong over the trip on turf and AW since and looks up against it.

Yarmouth novice winner (1m, good to soft) a year ago and has run some good race since handicapping, especially since headgear went on; finished just behind King Cabo over C&D on his penultimate start (first-time blinkers), but may have finished ahead of that rival with a clear run; could be worth chancing.

Won at Sandown (1m, good) on handicap debut in May and comfortably followed up at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) last month; he's 10lb higher than last time and in a hotter race today, but the form has been franked by the runner-up and it remains to be seen where this 3yo's limitations lie; he's run well here and has been well backed for this race; firmly in calculations.
