Form & Verdict

Has an attractive pedigree and he belied odds of 40-1 when going very close on his 9.5f Wolverhampton debut in December; the third and fourth in that contest have gone on to better things so it might be worth forgiving him a lesser run back there since, particularly as he met trouble at a crucial stage; up in trip; could be the way to go.

Value for more than his narrow winning margin at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) on seasonal debut, having done well considering he pulled hard and met traffic issues; has plenty of 1m4f form and may remain competitive back up just 1lb.

Sold for 1,000gns after finishing down the field on sole run in France (as 2yo) and looks a bargain based on her 1m4f Southwell second 18 days ago, a performance which clearly wasn't unexpected given her position as market leader; open to improvement and much respected under Ryan Moore.
