Form & Verdict

Already boasts a fairly useful level of form, improving for his first run when beaten a head at Kempton (1m, AW; 11-1) in December; battled on well that day and should be suited by today's longer distance (brother to useful 1m2f winner Jaramillo); yard won this race in 2019 with Bangkok, who followed up in the Sandown Classic Trial; leading contender in first-time hood.

Just the one win (a maiden) from ten starts but he performed with credit in some good races last season and did so again on reappearance this May; disappointing favourite next time and given wind surgery soon afterwards; probably needs to return with a career best.

Just the one win to his name but he performed with great credit in some good races last season and his return to action at Chester wasn't without hope either; high in the weights but could still have more to offer; shaped well on Polytrack as a 2yo.

10st 2lb

J: Richie McLernon

T: Emmet Mullins

Does not look straightforward but he delivered some solid runs as a Flat stayer last summer, including a last-gasp win, and is unexposed with stamina tests over hurdles; has second run for his highly respected new stable, with usual cheekpieces restored and a tongue-tie added; interesting.

Unplaced both outings last year, better effort when last of four in conditions race at Chemsford (1m2f, AW; 33-1) in November; bred in the purple and should improve this season, but he certainly needs to.
