Sent off 40-1 for his Newbury debut (6.5f, good to firm) this month, but he showed plenty of promise in finishing second of the ten runners, keeping on all the way to the line; the way he performed there and his pedigree suggests this slightly longer trip will suit and he holds strong claims.

Doncaster novice winner (7f, good) for Tom Dascombe last summer; stiff task next time and not beaten far when ninth of 20 on nursery debut at York (7f, good to firm) but he was well held on stable debut at Kempton (1m, AW); gelded since and market informative after six months off.

Placed on first three starts (gelded after second) but much improved to win eight-runner nursery here (1m, good to firm) in September on final outing, always prominent and rallying extremely well; up 5lb but likely to be well suited by 1m2f+ and therefore one to note.

Big-race entries include the Derby; won debut and Listed second at Salisbury (1m, good) was his best form; flopped in a Newmarket Group 3 (1m, soft) on final 2yo start and although fourth in Listed race at Epsom (1m2f, good) 18 days ago was a great deal better, he was 2l behind Defiance that day and that rival finished more strongly.

Well beaten in Group 3 at Newmarket last October when last seen, but soft ground may not have suited on that final run for Andrew Balding; before that he was a Listed runner-up at Salisbury (1m, good) behind a winner who followed up in a Group 3, and his dam was a 1m2f Canadian Grade 1 winner so there's optimism regarding this trip; interesting contender on stable debut.

By Dubawi out of a Canadian Grade 1 winner; overcame inexperience to make a winning start on the July course here (7f, good to soft) before being put in his place by an improving Godolphin colt in a 1m Listed race at Salisbury (good); clearly needs more if he's to justify a further rise in class but improvement is perfectly feasible.
