Promising winner of 7f maiden at Newmarket in late 2020; missed 2021 but returned in good form at 1m on AW for the Gosdens in the spring; has had another break since, however, and sold for 35,000gns in the summer; has been gelded; can't rule out some improvement back over 7f on turf.

Regressive on the Flat and just 2-26 in that sphere; best watched for future reference on hurdles debut.

Two 6f AW wins in Britain; two recent C&D runs have been respectable, but held by Nibras Rainbow.
