9st 5lb

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Lightly raced, fast-ground maiden winner who was runner-up at Newcastle (1m, AW) in March and returned to form when third at Doncaster (7f, good to soft) ten days ago; however, this headstrong sort has been inconsistent this year and will struggle to see out this stiff 1m if pulling hard.

J: Harrison Shaw

Ex-Andrew Balding; two sound runs over 6f/1m at Newcastle earlier this year, but below-par on last three outings (5l behind Cold Stare over 6f at Hamilton last time); needs to bounce back.

Form & Verdict
Following wind surgery he returned from some time off with a win at Catterick (7f, soft) last month; his form went the wrong way after a promising reappearance last year, and he may want slow ground, but he remains well treated back up just 3lb for last time and is not ruled out.

Resumed with 7f Catterick success but below par both runs since, beating only one at Leicester (7f) ten days ago; it would come as no surprise to see him bounce back here though with Patrick Mullins up.

Down the field at York last time but was reportedly unsuited by the ground (good, good to firm in places) in that warm handicap; prior to that he won on his reappearance at Catterick (7f, soft) and he could bounce back and have a big say if getting his preferred slow conditions.

Midfield in the Royal Hunt Cup last week and still has a modest strike-rate on turf; beat Zip in clearcut style over C&D in May, taking AW record to 3-8; may have more to offer back on this surface.

Newcastle success took his AW record to 3-8; form dipped markedly at York five days later and his turf strike-rate remains poor; far from certain to repeat his 2021 Royal Ascot effort (second in the Coventry).

Front-runner who won on last turf start at Yarmouth (6f, good) last September and has added three 7f AW wins since; however, he hasn't been at his very best on his last three runs and needs a bigger performance today.
