Form & Verdict

Cost 550,000euros in May; ran green when 6-5 favourite at Windsor (6f, good to firm) last month but he gradually worked his way into contention before going close in a clear second; that was a highly promising start and he sets a useful standard on that form; should be hard to beat.

J: David Egan

T: Roger Varian

Midfield (below par) in the 2,000 Guineas on sole run this season, appearing to confirm that he's a Commonwealth Cup prospect as opposed to a potential miler; very promising 6f colt (on good/firmer) last term, recording form figures of 211 that culminated in an impressive performance in the Mill Reef at Newbury; retains major potential and looks an exciting contender back down in trip; judged on 2yo evidence, he could easily develop into a top performer at this distance.

Narrowly denied on debut but breezed home at Haydock (good to firm) next time and did it almost as easily when upped in class for the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury (good) later in September; they were all over 6f but there was plenty about the way he did it which suggested he will stay further; exciting prospect.

Form & Verdict

Ran green after missing the break over C&D on his debut last month but he left that form well behind when justifying support at Lingfield (6f, AW) 12 days ago; has a penalty but he's open to more progress back on turf and is respected with William Buick booked.

Half-brother to some useful winners but he finished in mid division when 20-1 for a big-field maiden at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) on his debut in July; has a lot to find after a break and he's probably one for a bit further down the line.
