Well beaten in nurseries at two major summer festivals but also won one by a neck, making all, at the big Ayr meeting (1m, good) in September; won on good to firm ground and soft earlier in the summer but flopped over 1m2f on soft on final 2yo outing; gelded since; sire suggests middle distances, so he may have more to offer despite having seen plenty of action.

Not entirely solid on novice form, with 5l success here (7f, good to soft) flanked by a couple of ordinary efforts; therefore carries top weight due to one standout performance but the return to this course may suit.
