Rated 24lb higher at this stage last year; disappointing for new yard over the winter but there was a bit more encouragement in a Class 6 at Chelmsford last week; type to capitalise on his lowly mark soon.

Form & Verdict
Goes well fresh, winning on his reappearance in 2022 and running a cracker in a hot Newbury sprint last April when going off hard; won at Windsor last May off 5lb higher (6f, good to firm; handles soft); ended 2023 quietly but he's had a wind op since and this is weaker than he's used to contesting.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Hughie Morrison

Fluffed the start on his reappearance at Brighton and his close second was meritorious in the circumstances; made no mistake at Nottingham four weeks ago (5f, good) and a 3lb rise is fine given last summer's best; first run at Goodwood but he's run well on undulating tracks before.

Two C&D wins last year, including this race off a 1lb lower mark; down the field in two AW runs this year but not beaten far last time and he should be spot on for his repeat bid.

J: Hollie Doyle

Won twice at Brighton last season off higher marks; yet to catch light this time around but he's down in the weights and Hollie Doyle, who has ridden him to four of his eight wins, takes over for the first time this year; potential revival.

Form & Verdict
Last spring's Windsor win (5f, soft) came off a 3lb higher mark; wouldn't judge him too harshly on last month's Southwell return and he should be seen to better effect here.

Record at Windsor reads -114232212; excelled himself when fourth in the Dash nine days ago, racing from 9lb out of the handicap, and he has to be high on the list back off his proper mark at his favoured venue.

Running well at a lower level, winning a 5f handicap at Windsor (good to soft) in April and second of 13 back there last week (6f, good); back up in the weights and, more significantly, in class this time; vulnerable from 9lb out of the handicap.
