Has proved consistent since winning a Beverley claimer (5f, good to firm) for another yard in May, including winning a Catterick nursery (5f, good) last month and running a subsequent winner close at Musselburgh (5f, good) 13 days later; up another 3lb, but still respected.

Form & Verdict
Has shown ability in three sprint contests, most recently third at Haydock two months ago; beaten favourite on two occasions but may well start to improve now handicapping; bred to rate higher than this opening mark, being half-sister to a Listed scorer for this yard; highly respected.

Reliable as a 2yo, winning Bath maiden in September and running creditably after three months off when fourth in nursery here on Boxing Day; both those runs were over 5f but he stays 6f well; unlikely to be far away.

Was on the go early and fully exposed now (at 5f-1m); stiff 5f was fine when off the mark at Bath in the autumn but this will be more about speed and he's some way down the pecking order back from three months off.

Made late headway after a tardy start at Catterick (5f, soft) on most recent completed outing (unseated rider early last time); gives the impression she'll improve for this extra yardage; wasn't beaten far on her only AW run (here); could still be unexposed.

Respectable 5f form as 2yo without progressing; went down narrowly after making the running on Southwell AW reappearance but he didn't find much back on turf at Musselburgh (5f, good) since and there are likely to be stronger finishers in this field; first-time blinkers fitted.
