Form & Verdict

Decent maiden who appreciated the ease in class when runner-up at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm), albeit in a tactical small-field affair; this is deeper but his mark went untouched.

Closest he's finished was last time at Nottingham when beaten 8l in a 1m2f novice, though was only ninth of ten runners; the handicapper hasn't been overly kind.

Ended last term with heavy defeats in the Irish Cesarewitch and Group 1 Prix Royal-Oak; up to that he'd had a cracking campaign in handicaps, in which the first of three wins came over C&D first time out (his last AW run), and he still looks on a highly competitive mark if reappearing at the top of his game.

Some promise on two visits to Wolverhampton late last year; backward step at Southwell (1m3f) on his return from 237 days away (was gelded) but may yet have better times ahead for his top yard.

Showed little in three outings as a 2yo (once on Polytrack) but made an immediate impact once returning in handicaps in the summer, including wins on good ground at Pontefract (1m4f) and Newbury (1m5f); the race wasn't run to suit (pulled hard in rear) when failing in his hat-trick bid back at Newbury in August, since when he has been gelded; could go well if this pans out more favourably for him.

Consistent since handicapping and unearthed improvement from somewhere to scoot home at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm), for which she has gone up 6lb; well bred and might well have more to offer.
