Sole appearance here (penultimate start) was not as good as her other two runs in handicaps but she was beaten just over 3l so it was respectable; found only a notably progressive rival too good for her at Lingfield (1m5f, Polytrack) last time and has major claims on that performance.

Form & Verdict
Kicked off his handicap career with a close second here (1m) last May but he's been well held in three runs since, including when back at this track (1m3f) last month; mark is sliding but he's now 0-7 and others are more convincing; tongue-tie added.

Just one win since 2019 but that came off 3lb higher at Chester (1m4f) last summer and this veteran was a respectable fifth at Southwell last month; may have done too much too soon behind an in-form rival in that race and he's not ruled out.

Flat winner in France on very soft; second on his hurdle debut at Fontwell (good) when in this headgear combination and blinkers were tried when a weakener at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft); this longer trip shouldn't be a problem for this 3yo who gets the allowances; 3lb out of the handicap.
