Form & Verdict
Currently 2-2 on Tapeta, 0-7 otherwise, but not without promise back from three months off over C&D a fortnight ago having reared at the start; headgear goes back on tonight (first-time blinkers rather than the usual cheekpieces) and he's considered.

Cheekpieces experiment quickly binned after a poor effort on Polytrack last Wednesday; hasn't always looked the easiest, often pulling hard, and needs a career best off this mark (4lb higher than when winning at Ascot last month).

Different proposition at three, making virtually all at Chelmsford then collaring one who was also hanging right at Ascot (again went from the front; pair nicely clear); fitting of cheekpieces could help him stay straight this time and he's up just 4lb.

Progressive in nurseries last backend but the handicapper's looked in charge this time round; Oisin Murphy is a positive booking (albeit he's 0-11 for the yard); dropped another 2lb but remains vulnerable to improvers.

Made all when stringing his field right out on his comeback, having undergone wind surgery in the winter; ridden less aggressively but didn't see out 7f under a penalty in a valuable novice last time; retains potential now handicapping.

Had wind surgery after finishing well held on his 7f Ascot debut last September and proved a totally different proposition when making all for a ready 6l success on his 6f Nottingham reappearance three weeks ago; his strength at the finish on that occasion provides hope he can be as effective back at 7f; should go well.

Hard to know what happened last time, with him beaten well before stamina became an issue over 7f; his previous Lingfield (turf) second hasn't worked out particularly well since however.

Below expectations when seventh of eight in Kempton novice (6f, AW) five weeks ago, but he was drawn wide and slowly away and is probably better judged on a workmanlike win at Doncaster (6f, good) last summer; should stay 7f and may still have untapped potential; has possibilities.

Appreciated the step back up from 5f, minus the tongue-tie worn for her first two runs back, when winning a Polytrack handicap easily two weeks ago; this is tougher upped 7lb but it wouldn't surprise were she up to it.

Yarmouth maiden winner (6f, good) last August who was returning from 251 days off when beaten a neck over C&D (first-time tongue-tie) last month; opening handicap mark looks fair judged on that effort and any improvement from it would put her right in the mix.
