Suited by ground softer than good; both wins came as a 2yo in 2022 but he's run well to finish placed at Thirsk and Haydock (both at 6f on soft) in the last of his three runs this season; remains well treated on his best form and he's on the shortlist.

Closely related to a triple sprint winner for his connections; has duly shown ability in four runs, close third in Redcar nursery (7f, good to soft) latest; should be as effective back down in trip; wears first-time headgear; major contender.

Form & Verdict

Ran creditably from the front in first-time cheekpieces (replacing blinkers) in 7f AW maiden at Wolverhampton last week, leaving the impression this return to 6f will prove ideal; now 0-8 but he's consistent and has a leading chance on form.

Seven-race maiden; has shown glimpses of ability, namely when fourth in a first-time visor at Musselburgh (7f, good) on penultimate start; it is possible that he found his next run at Ripon coming a shade too soon; blinkers are now the headgear of choice from this falling mark.
