Form & Verdict

Too green to do himself justice at Catterick on his debut 18 days ago (7f, soft), slowly away and never on terms; should have learned a good deal for the experience and 1m should suit.

Often highly tried for previous stable; runner-up in both outings (hurdle/Flat) for new yard, latest at Epsom (1m4f, good) where he was no match for the winner but ran creditably; possibilities, provided he takes well to first-time hood.

Two 2yo wins in 2022 and some tough assignments during last year's 3yo Flat campaign, in which he was 0-6; fair second of three on hurdle/stable debut at Doncaster last November; may be best watched now back on the Flat.

Form & Verdict

Sent off at 22-1 for his Newbury debut (6f, good) in June but he outran those odds, staying on strongly down the near side to snatch second close home (winner raced nearer the far rail); open to improvement and 1m should be within range; one to take seriously.

Well-related colt who was green when tenth of 13 at York on his debut four weeks ago (7f, good to firm); stable's 2yos can take a good step forward from their debut but he will need to if he is to shake up the principals; 1m should suit.

9st 7lb

J: Oisin Murphy

Can front-run; registered two wins and a second over 1m on good or good to firm last May-August, his highlights on turf last year; reappeared with AW win at Wolverhampton in February and although trying to overcome a wide draw in warm race there in March did not work out, that shouldn't attract much criticism; needs a career best but not dismissed.

Sent off the 13-8 favourite for a ten-runner novice at Doncaster last month (7f, good to firm) and he made a very encouraging start, green but keeping on steadily in the closing stages; that form has a solid look to it and he is the one to beat now upped to 1m.

Has made the frame on all four starts in maiden/novice events, although Tajawal was merely pushed out to see him off quite comfortably at Ayr (1m, good to firm) last time and not sure a 6lb swing in the weights is enough for him to reverse those placings.
