Form & Verdict
Beaten on last 15 starts going back to last May and he wasn't at his best last time; has raced over 7f in the main this season, but he was an encouraging third of 16 off this mark at York (6f, good to soft) in July and a strong pace in this big field should see him to good effect; a possible.

Winless since October 2021; his last five victories have come on soft/heavy ground but he would have been bang there on good going over C&D in June if he'd enjoyed a clear run; very close third off this mark at Doncaster (6f, soft) last time out and he has a solid record at Ayr; likely player.

Form & Verdict
Can be slowly away, which would be costly now back down in trip, and he's done all of his winning over 7f-plus; however, a fast-run race in a big field over 6f could play to this hold-up horse's strengths, and he arrives in good form having won at Southwell (7f, AW) recently; has won here twice.

Best effort this year when swooping late to win a Racing League event at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; does not look overburdened with a 5lb rise and Amie Waugh's claim helps offset that anyway; yet to show his form at 6f but this stiff track should suit and he's capable of another big run.

J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Jim Goldie

Unplaced in all eight starts and although he was keeping on over C&D five weeks ago (well backed in a visor for the first time), he never looked like getting there; Paul Mulrennan a good booking and could have a bigger run in him.
