Made it sixth time lucky when landing a classified event at Chepstow (1m4f, good) in June and he resumed his progress with a front-running second in a C&D handicap two weeks ago; has finished just ahead of Typewritten in two of his last three starts and he should make another bold bid.

Off the mark at the eighth attempt when scoring at Southwell (1m4f, AW; Hellavaheart sixth) last month and she ran well again when third over C&D (good; Hellavaheart runner-up) two weeks ago; couldn't land a major blow in that race but she stayed on well and still has potential as a handicapper; shortlisted.
