Form & Verdict
Won a 1m AW novice for this yard three years ago and was later placed in Group races, including the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot; was returning from 256 days away when down the field in a 1m4f handicap at York last May on his sole run for William Haggas (same ownership; first-time tongue-tie) and now returns from another layoff; wellbeing is clearly an issue.

Placed in Group/Listed races in 2021 (including on good ground); below par in light 2022 and also on sole 2023 run; returned with comfortable front-running handicap win at Bath recently (1m2f, heavy); today's task is considerably tougher and he has something to find with the principals, but he may get an easy lead if latest tactics are repeated, which can count for a lot.

Unraced here but has form figures of 211 at Chester, which augurs well, and he looks highly versatile regarding the ground; latest win at the big Chester meeting three weeks ago came by just a nose, so a career best is needed but he requires a close look.

Won here in 2021 (1m2f, good) and, after missing 2022 and 2023, he returned with a staying-on third at Bath (1m2f, heavy) 16 days ago; the bounce factor may be an issue of this second quick start back, but there was plenty to like about his comeback run and he's well treated on old form.
