No. 1 Draw 3

In good nick on the all-weather earlier this year but failed to meet expectations returned to turf/handicap company at Chepstow 9 weeks ago. Sneaks into this 0-75 today but may have to wait a bit longer for his breakthrough success.

Dual winner at up to 7f on turf/AW as a 3-y-o who twice went close in 7f handicaps during the spring. Stamina possibly stretched over 7.6f trip at Chester last time (found less than looked likely) and she may well have a major say in this.

Showed further improvement fitted with first-time cheekpieces when runner-up at Chepstow on penultimate start and he was unlucky not to finish a shade closer on polytrack debut at Lingfield last week, hampered over 2f out. Blinkers now tried and he's fancied to go close.

Consistent rather than progressive but he did shape encouragingly when fourth on handicap debut (4/1) at Doncaster (7f) back in May, nearest finish after slowly away. Gelded since and the hood goes back on today.

Has taken his form up a level since being fitted with blinkers, opening his account on the turf over C&D in May and posting solid efforts in defeat since. Latest effort worth marking up a shade (was messed about at the start) and he should remain competitive.

Opened his account at Redcar in April and largely in good form since, capitalising on the drop in grade when cosily scoring at Catterick 17 days ago. Has left David O'Meara since and no surprise to see him involved back in handicap company.
