4 yo Gelding

OR: 51

Has modest 1-20 strike-rate but was denied a clear run when respectable fourth (subsequently promoted to third) at Redcar (1m, good) last month and a recent 1lb drop helps; each-way claims at least.

Form & Verdict
Quite useful in his prime but hasn't won since October 2020; runner-up over 7f twice last month (claimer/handicap) but does not have a good record at this track and younger rivals have more appealing profiles.

Regular turf winner (12-48) who is light on AW experience (0-2); has been raised a couple of pounds since finishing runner-up at Ayr (1m, heavy) last month; this stablemate of Perfect Swiss can't be dismissed in the hands of the capable 7lb claimer Alex Fielding.

Lost out only by a neck on last month's stable debut at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) and kept on strongly for clearcut AW success ten days later; escapes a penalty for the win (albeit a 2lb rise for the earlier run has now taken effect) and is 5lb ahead of the handicapper here.

Win last summer came over 7f and has done her racing since over 6f-1m; another solid effort here three weeks ago, having met a bit of early traffic in the first-time visor, and has claims if dealing with the sharper test in a first-time tongue-tie.
