Dam bred five winners, two Group-placed at 7f and 1m, and this one was a promising fourth over 1m on Kempton debut in November (7-2); yard's runners can come on plenty for their debut but those ahead of her have let the form down since and her tail-swishing raises temperament queries.

Had his quirks last term (gelded before final start; wore headgear last four) and going very close in the King Edward VII at Royal Ascot (1m4f) remains clearly his highest rating; first start on softer than good was his respectable third to Max Vega in Group 3 over C&D (heavy) last October; even peak form may not be good enough.
