Late foal; dominated a novice at Kempton (1m2f, AW; 10-11) in March on debut; runner-up in a novice at Newmarket (1m2f, good) and Listed race at Goodwood (1m3f, soft), in the latter leading until final strides after seeing off other challengers; he's come up against highly regarded opposition on last two starts and looks capable of improvement himself; no surprise if he's better than this mark and good claimer Benoit De La Sayette is recruited.
