One-time Royal Lodge entry and plenty to like about his 5l debut third at Ascot (7f) four weeks ago, fading as though the outing was possibly just needed; bold show likely with improvement on the cards.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Richard Hughes

Wolverhampton novice winner (7f, AW) last autumn and ran well when second of 15 behind a subsequent winner at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) in April; didn't enjoy the best of runs when fourth of seven there (1m2f, good) last month, but it didn't cost him the race; bit more needed.

J: David Probert

T: Richard Hughes

Made all in novice at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in October; gelded before handicap debut here (1m, good to soft) four weeks ago and it was an eyecatching performance to be second of 15, given how long he spent on the bridle looking for a clear run; should stay 1m2f and although raised 3lb, he looks better than that.

Late foal; sole turf start was at Ascot (good) on debut, promising; made all at Wolverhampton (7f) in October and creditable fifth of 12 in another novice at Lingfield (1m) on reappearance last month; gelded since; needs improvement on this handicap debut but early days.

150,000gns son of Kingman; closely related to useful 5f-6f winner Swindler (GB/Bahrain; RPR 104) and half-brother to four other winners; dam 6f/6.5f winner (including 2yo/AW; 91); makes paper appeal and interesting to see what the betting makes of him.

Iffraaj half-brother to 7f and 1m (Group 3) 2yo winner Fleur D'Iris; dam Brazilian Group 1 winner; 33-1, very green but made eyecatching late gains for fifth of 11 on his 7f Kempton debut ten days ago; could easily leave that bare form behind.

Ordinary Flat winner; just under 3l behind Kartoon And Co when highly tried in Huntingdon's Chatteris Fen on hurdling debut and another good run behind respected opposition here since (both on good to soft); bit to find and questionable whether today's testing conditions will see him to the same effect.

Form & Verdict

300,000gns breeze-up purchase but he was sent off at 11-1 and, having raced freely, weakened to finish well held on his 7f Sandown debut three months ago; given time since and clearly possible he could prove a different proposition second time up but he's passed over unless the market strongly hints otherwise.

Ninth of ten on debut at Sandown (7f, good) in July and again raced too freely when last of six over that trip at Wolverhampton (AW) this month; might be seen to better effect now dropped to 6f and fitted with a hood but remains best watched.
