Ran green when 28-1 at Kempton (7f) on his debut in April but he showed clear promise on his return when a well-backed third of six here (8.6f) three weeks ago; that was a major step forward from this well-bred 3yo and he's open to more progress for a top yard; big player.

Gained back-to-back wins at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) in January but disappointed in his hat-trick bid over the same C&D last month; still lightly raced and pedigree offers hope that this much longer trip will be within range, but he does need to put that latest effort behind him.

Improving at a rate of knots and had little difficulty in completing a hat-trick of wins over 8.6f on the Wolverhampton Tapeta when beating Serenading by 2l there last month; 10lb higher and not ideally drawn on this step up in trip, but there is some stamina in her pedigree and the ceiling of her ability may not yet have been reached.
