360,000gns Frankel colt who is half-brother to Group 1 winner Aclaim (RPR 118); well-backed favourite and finished well to snatch second at Nottingham in April; 5-4, similar form when fourth of seven in maiden at Newmarket (again 1m2f, good) in May, making most; still time for him to improve.

Held up; had wind/gelding operations prior to reappearance win last June; ran a shocker at the Newmarket July festival but hit a new high when next seen taking a handicap at Beverley (1m4f, good) in September; up 6lb but a player if returns in that top form.

125-1 when 8l fifth of six in Listed race at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) in May; 250-1 for the Derby at Epsom (1m4f, good) six weeks ago, soon struggling but he did pass some rivals to finish 15l tenth of 17, which appeared to be useful form; good chance for new yard (has left Stan Moore) if that is taken at face value.

Fairly useful form in bumpers and over hurdles; 9-1, made most when fourth of nine in a novice at Doncaster (1m4f, good) 15 days ago on debut under Flat rules; enough in that for him to be considered in the field.

Placed twice in a row in the winter (2m3f, good) and returned from a break with fair seventh of 19 at Aintree last month (2m, soft; beaten 6l); however, he needs something extra if he's to land this.

Exceeded market expectations when eighth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last March; has been running well this winter but his sole handicap win came at Cartmel (2m1f, heavy) last July and he's still 6lb higher, so it's likely he has his share of weight; cheekpieces (tried once in 2022, Flat) are refitted.

Form & Verdict

Dug deep to win heavy-ground Kelso bumper on debut in February and, after some very disappointing starts, he was third of six at Cartmel three weeks ago in his second novice hurdle; the latter form was nothing special but he needs a second look.
