Form & Verdict
Won both 2yo starts (7f/1m, fast ground); hasn't kicked on this year but he hasn't run badly in 1m handicaps the last twice and the time looks right for this step back up in trip (dam won over 1m2f); a possible.

Made all in Salisbury maiden (1m4f, good to firm) in May on his third start and followed up in Bath handicap (1m2f, good to soft) later that month; respectable sixth of 15 in competitive Sandown handicap (1m2f, good to firm) a fortnight ago when enduring a wide trip and remains open to improvement.

Returned to form with a front-running second of six behind an unexposed Varian-trained winner at York (1m2f, good to firm) last Friday; just 1lb higher here and could make another bold bid.

Form & Verdict
Won Ayr maiden (1m, good) in April on his second start then bumped into subsequent Queen's Vase winner Eldar Eldarov when runner-up at Newcastle (1m2f, AW); down the field on handicap debut at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm) but he's in calmer water today and retains potential; considered.

J: Tom Marquand

T: William Haggas

Easy to back and needed the experience on debut but 1-3 when he made light work of his rivals in a 1m maiden at Ayr (good) next time; more on his plate today but this trip will suit and he's clearly useful.

Form & Verdict
Won for Fozzy Stack on his debut last July and this is just his second start for a trainer who does very well with recruits from other yards; however, he's failed to shine on his three outings this year and needs a big turnaround on this first run beyond 1m.
