Form & Verdict
Has soon developed into a solid 1m/1m2f handicapper without looking strikingly progressive; could perhaps have done with a truer pace to run at when finishing just behind the front-running Maytree Respite here a fortnight ago.

Form & Verdict
Stepped up to 1m2f the last twice, having little in hand when winning at Newbury (good) and then a front-running second here behind one going places, when Cosmic Desert was hot on his heels; no surprise should he again be ridden positively and has to go well.

OUR TIP

Form: 31-6

Last run: 104 days

W: 9st 9lb

3 yo Colt

OR: 87

Form & Verdict
Brother to top-class Cracksman; looked good in winning his second juvenile start at Newcastle (1m AW) and, considering his subsequent absence, he probably failed to give his true running when 9-1 for the Group 3 Classic Trial here in April won by Irish Derby hero Westover; goes handicapping as a relative unknown quantity but some market confidence would be welcomed.

Beautifully bred colt (brother to Cracksman) who was sent off 5-4 favourite for his Doncaster debut (1m, good to firm) last month, but could only manage third of eight behind a stablemate; should know more this time and with his sire 19-77 (25%) here in the past five seasons, this Vertem Futurity entry should be hard to beat.

Form & Verdict
1m AW novice winner who has finished within 2l of the principals in all three handicaps, latterly on good ground at Yarmouth; these conditions will be the quickest he's encountered but blinkers might bring him on and there are winners in the family over this longer distance.

Form & Verdict
1m novice winner on the AW; not disgraced in his two subsequent runs but he dropped out to finish last of the five on his handicap debut at Haydock (1m, soft; not beaten far) and has only dropped 1lb; has been gelded and pedigree points to improvement over this longer trip, but others appeal more.
