Form & Verdict
2-6 as 2yo, running poorly on final start and gelded soon after; 20-1 and 22-1 when never dangerous in handicaps at Sandown (1m; should stay further) and Newbury (1m2f London Gold Cup) this season, modest displays which see his connections turn to blinkers.

2-6 as 2yo, running poorly on final start and gelded soon after; 20-1 for reappearance in handicap at Sandown (1m) three weeks and he was outpaced in last of ten 2f but before passing three rivals; while that was hardly bet-compelling for this hot race, it did suggest that today's extra 2f can help and his yard won three of the last six runnings of this race.

Off the mark in four-runner handicap at Salisbury (1m2f, good to firm) on reappearance, leading over 3f out and keeping on well; respectable fifth of 13 at Epsom (1m2f, good) three weeks ago; may need to resume progress.

0-6 as a 2yo for Tom Dascombe but he went close in nurseries (1m and extended 1m1f) on his last two starts; has since been gelded and Hugo Palmer is now in charge of the yard; could still be unexposed and he should stay this slightly longer distance; not ruled out.

3 yo Colt

OR: 86

Form & Verdict
Tends to sweat up and can race freely; front-runner on all four starts, with two pieces of fairly useful form and two heavy defeats; one of the latter in the London Gold Cup at Newbury last time and he has been gelded since; bit to prove but today's race is far less daunting.

Sweating and looked very green on both 2yo starts, still good enough to win at Goodwood (1m, good) on debut but a flop at Chester (7.5f, good); again made the running and looked much more professional, though still something to learn, when close third of eight in another novice at Chepstow (1m2f, good to firm) 16 days ago, galloping on well and leaving the strong impression he has more to give.

Form & Verdict
Upped to this trip for handicap debut at Haydock (good to soft) 15 days ago and she got off the mark with a dead-heat, coming from towards rear; raised 5lb but may have more to offer at about 1m2f.

Form & Verdict
The promise shown over 7f on turf as 2yo has not been built on in his two AW races (7f and 9.4f) this March; gelded since; stamina in the family makes this new trip plausible but a revival is needed.
