J: Liam Keniry

T: Sylvester Kirk

Won at 80-1 in a maiden at Lingfield (11.6f, good to firm) in August on his second start; this well-bred and very lightly raced 3yo retains potential but he needs a bigger performance than when merely fifth on his handicap debut at Newbury (1m4f, good) last time.

T: Sylvester Kirk

Well beaten on debut in January (9.4f, AW) but sprung 80-1 shock in first-time tongue-tie (retained) at Lingfield (11.6f, good to firm) recently on his second start; his pedigree provides hope he will be capable of better still and he's a possible contender on handicap debut.
