Form & Verdict
In the frame all four starts, most notably when second of 13 at Windsor (5f, good to firm) two runs ago; didn't see out 6f after again racing too freely at Newbury (good) two weeks ago but still ran pretty well there, and today's race is much easier.

Form & Verdict
First foal from a fair 2yo sprint winner; looked sure to win three-runner Bath maiden (5.7f, firm) when moving clear over 1f on recent debut, only to succumb to an experienced rival in the closing stages; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he evidently has ability.

Raced prominently for a fair way and certainly wasn't disgraced when fifth of six at Epsom (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago, his second run, but will need to improve to pose a significant threat here; drops back in trip with cheekpieces fitted for first time.
