Form & Verdict

Beautifully bred colt (brother to Cracksman) who was sent off 5-4 favourite for his Doncaster debut (1m, good to firm) last month, but could only manage third of eight behind a stablemate; should know more this time and with his sire 19-77 (25%) here in the past five seasons, this Vertem Futurity entry should be hard to beat.

12-1 and ran green when seventh of nine on his Wolverhampton debut (8.6f, Tapeta) 13 days ago; should have derived benefit from the experience and is nicely bred, but he will need to come on plenty in order to trouble Frantastic.

Hinted at ability when fifth of 12 on his Haydock debut (7f, good to firm) in July, but most disappointing when last of ten at Thirsk (7f, good) last month; cost 335,000gns at the breeze-ups and sire 14-58 (24%) here in the past five seasons, but he needs to find plenty of improvement.

A three-time winner in 2023, including in a division of this event, but he's yet to fire in three runs this term, only tenth at Yarmouth (1m) last time; still can't be totally dismissed off a reduced mark.

Best not to dwell on recent AW defeats and to concentrate instead on him having won three of his last four 1m starts on turf, quite emphatically over C&D in August last time (good to soft; earlier wins on good); now 1lb lower than the latter and primed for a revival.

Down the field last October on his first three runs (7f/1m); however, this half-brother to useful 1m-1m4f winner Elm Grove goes handicapping with his trainer in fine form, and wearing a first-time visor; watch the betting.
