Fairly useful 11-race maiden (stays 1m3f, acts on soft) on Flat in Ireland; promise on first two starts over hurdles and he looked odds-on to win when tipping up at the second-last flight in maiden hurdle at Doncaster (2m, good) three weeks ago, about 6l clear at the time; tongue tied first time that day; should have a big shout.

Fairly useful 11-race maiden on Flat in Ireland; runner-up on Wetherby hurdle debut over Christmas but actually achieved a better RPR when fifth in a Huntingdon Class 2 (both 2m, soft), although Rewired was just under 5l ahead of him in fourth; tongue-tie added; joint-best Flat RPR achieved on good ground; should be competitive.

Muted display at Epsom (good) in July but his other three handicaps have brought a head second and two wins; wore cheekpieces in all those handicaps and the three best efforts were on soft or heavy; Leicester win last time suggests he is well equipped for this slightly longer trip; up another 5lb but one to take seriously.

Disappointed three starts back but a steady improver otherwise; ran on well over 11.6f here (form) on penultimate start and went one better, again from off the pace, when upped to 1m6f at Goodwood on latest; those were handicaps and she received a stone from third-placed Roseabad last time; further progress is needed but she's heading the right way.
