Has slipped to an attractive mark, but with good reason (losing run stretches back almost 3 years) and efforts so far this season have lacked spark.

He has won four times from 1m 1f to 1m 6f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft and on the all-weather, but last win was over three years ago. Finished 3 1/2l behind Mancini when fourth of 7 at 4-1 on his latest outing at Sandown over 1m 6f (good to firm) last month.

Infrequent winner, but capable on his day and by no means disgraced in a trio of handicaps over this trip upon resumption.

He has won three times from 7f to 1m 6f on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 2 3/4l by Mancini when second of 7 at 12-1 on his latest outing at Sandown over 1m 6f (good to firm) last month.

Lightly raced for his age and ended 2019 over hurdles. Very likely he needed the run on June's reappearance at Ascot and this will reveal more. Cheekpieces back on.

He has won three times from 1m 2f to 1m 4f on ground varying from firm to good to soft, but last win was over three years ago. Well beaten at 28-1 when 13th of 19 on his latest outing at Ascot over 2m 4f (good to soft) in June.

Resumed with 12f win at Lingfield in June and runner-up all 3 outings since at up to 11.5f. Isn't crying out for this far, however.

Successful at 7f and 1m 4f on good ground and on the all-weather. Beaten 4l by Cape Cavalli when second of 10 at 5-1 on his latest outing at York over 1m 2f (good to soft) last month.

Resumed with 12f win at Lingfield in June and runner-up all 3 outings since at up to 11.5f. Isn't crying out for this far, however.

At The Races Verdict

Laafy went down fighting when second in the Old Newton Cup and having scored impressively at Newbury before that, holds leading claims as he returns to further. The form of Calling The Wind's Ascot win is solid and he could play a part following a 7lb rise, while the consistent Mordred is interesting stepping up in trip. Mark Johnston has a fine record in this and his King's Advice was twice a C&D winner last season, including when taking this off a 4lb higher mark. Stablemates Hochfeld and Themaxwecan are both capable operators who can't be ignored, but a chance is taken on PLATITUDE, who is a dual track-and-trip winner and can take advantage of an attractive rating following an encouraging second at Sandown.

Timeform Verdict

A gelding operation prior to his reappearance seems to have sorted LAAFY out, as he improved on his winning Newbury form when runner-up in a well-up-to-scratch Old Newton Cup at Haydock and the step back up in trip may also be in his favour. Themaxwecan and Shailene are feared most.
