2,000 Guineas entry whose best effort so far was when second of 12 in a maiden over C&D last month; odds-on when third of six on handicap debut at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) last time; 4lb out of the weights so has a bit to do.

Form & Verdict

Has won both races at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) since returning from wind surgery in January, including on handicap debut last month; didn't win either by far, but on both occasions he gave the strong impression that tight track wasn't ideal; this galloping circuit should be much more up his street and so should the extra furlong judged on the dam's side of his pedigree; up 3lb, but still much respected.

Form & Verdict

Found Listed company too much for him at Doncaster last October, but 2-2 on the AW either side including when beating three rivals in a Lingfield novice (6f, Polytrack) on his return this month; speedily bred on the dam's side so wouldn't be sure to appreciate the extra furlong on this handicap debut, but he retains potential.

Ran well on several occasions after his successful Brighton debut last April, including when third of six in a Newbury Listed contest (7f, good) in August where he finished 2l behind the subsequent Group 2 winner Bayside Boy; two of his winning siblings were successful on the AW and so was his dam, but he has to give weight to some race-fit rivals on this return from 224 days off having been gelded in the meantime.

Form & Verdict

Placed in four of his six starts last year and the form of his second of 14 at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) in December has been boosted with the winner going in again twice since; makes his handicap debut after 103 days off with a visor given a go, but is up against some potential improvers.

Usually front-runs but from a wide draw he was held up here 28 days ago and finished with a right rattle to make the frame, despite racing very wide on the last bend; again he's dropped unlucky with the draw but if again held up he should at least have a strong pace up ahead of him.
