Impressed in defying a penalty at Wolverhampton and it was a cracking effort in defeat at Epsom (1m2f, good), especially as he didn't look overly at ease with the track; fourth-placed United Nations clearly took a significant step forward on that form when winning last week at Lingfield but this colt could do likewise; respected.

Improving over slightly shorter on Wolverhampton Tapeta but the remote second there last month had even bigger drubbing by Nahanni at Leicester since; may do better yet but big step up in class coincides with first experience of turf.

Reared in the stalls and pulled hard from a wide draw on his 7f debut last autumn; much more professional when beating two subsequent winners over C&D in January and has a fair chance of following up under the penalty; upset in stalls and withdrawn at Chelmsford last month (7-2 at the time).

Five runs on the AW, improving his RPR with each start; chasing a hat-trick after facile handicap wins at Lingfield (1m2f) and Wolverhampton (1m4f); up 7lb against stronger opposition today but may not have reached his ceiling just yet.

Has improved in each of his four starts and made all when beating Ask Peter by 5l on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) this month; has been gelded since and is 7lb higher now, but he gives the impression he still has further progress in him and there is enough stamina in his pedigree to suggest the extra distance won't be a problem; the one to beat.

Has improved with each run, winning with more authority than the narrow winning margin suggests on Chelmsford Polytrack in February; emphatically the best horse on the day when beating reappearing rivals in a 1m2f Doncaster handicap (good) 23 days ago but tendency to hang raises questions about this tricky track now up in class.
