Saw off the quite useful Blue Prince when making his second start a winning one at Doncaster (6f) last July; off since but he appeals as one who should have more to come in 2024.

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.

Impressed with the move he made to hit the front before weakening late on to finish third on his 7f Newcastle debut last summer; subsequently gelded; the way he travelled suggests this drop to 6f could be a good move; very interesting, particularly if the market suggests he's fully primed after 252 days off.
