Form & Verdict

Stoutly bred, from family of Lammtarra; kept on relentlessly to score by nearly 10l in a novice at Sandown (7f, good to firm) on second start and improved on that form when a very smooth winner by nearly 6l of Listed race at Salisbury (1m, good to firm); turned over at 2-7 in Group 2 here (1m, good) two weeks ago but it was a blanket finish to a steadily run race and okay on form; looks sure to stay and sets a clear standard.

Ran just once last year, when well beaten in the Dante at York in May (finished lame); gelded since; very promising 2yo in 2022, landing the Group 3 Zetland Stakes at Newmarket (1m2f, good) that October, and it will be no surprise if he returns with a big performance for his leading yard.

Went close at Ascot (7f, good) on second start and led 1f out for a clearcut win in maiden at Newcastle (1m, AW) three weeks later; rather free early on last time and also still looked green; this demands good deal more from him but he has potential.

Best 2yo run was on turf here but he suffered heavy defeats at Newmarket in his only two turf races last term, admittedly absent five months in between; surged back to form on AW last October-December but last month's run was not so good; blinkers are given a go and overall improvement is needed.

Ready winner of a 1m4f handicap at Newcastle in October and the RPR of 111 he recorded there brings him right into the reckoning; he has come up short in Listed events the last twice, however, and he has work to do with Base Note on their latest Kempton run.

Unraced on softer than good; won novice events at Carlisle (6f) and Beverley (7.4f) on first two starts; ran creditably in Group 2 at Goodwood (7f) and Listed race at Deauville (1m) but may have shown his hand more than a few of these.

130,000euros yearling; encouraging fifth of ten at Sandown (7f, good to firm) and he came with a steady run to justify 11-8 favouritism in novice at Haydock (1m, good to soft) 16 days later; going further than 1m will suit but he needs a major leap forward.

Close third at Goodwood (1m, soft) on debut and he improved to win a maiden there (1m2f, good to soft; always prominent) over three weeks later; this company demands a good deal more but he is the only one who has proved his stamina and he also looks the type to make further progress.

Sole AW run saw him last of ten at 100-1 on Southwell Tapeta in late December; that was in the middle of a modest campaign switched to hurdling by new yard and he needs something like his peak Flat form (1m4f win last June in first-time cheekpieces, for Andrew Balding) to hold a winning chance on this first start since leaving Tony Charlton.

Dam a Listed-placed 1m4f winner and half-sister to 2,000 Guineas winner Golan; showed his inexperience at Goodwood on debut; always prominent to win eight-runner maiden here (1m, good) over three weeks later by a short head, battling back very well; looks promising and sure to stay 1m2f but this is a major step up in class too.

Form dipped at Wolverhampton three weeks ago but he is normally consistent on AW and could well rebound; back on career-low mark and holds a good chance if taking well to new headgear (tongue-tie and blinkers replace hood/cheekpieces).
