Half-brother to three winners, notably Solene Lilyette, who improved with age; yard has again done better with 2yos on the AW than turf this year and the market will show what's expected.

Won on debut at Chelmsford (7f, AW) last November; has been headstrong on both runs since, most recently on his turf and handicap debut at Goodwood (1m, good) two weeks ago, but he still managed to finish second last time and has potential if able to settle better; trainer won this last year.

Just his yard's second 2yo winner of the season when springing a surprise on his C&D debut a month ago (Statu Of Liberty third); there looked to be no fluke about that and he's entitled to improve.

Reappearance win took his AW form figures (6f/7f) to 121; two underwhelming efforts on turf (1m) since; still has something to prove in this sphere and first-time headgear needs to make a difference.

Two AW wins (7f/6f) from first three starts and remains very lightly raced, but he was a 6l fifth of eight on last month's handicap and turf debut at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) and needs to leave that form behind.

Lightly-raced 3yo; has won two of his three starts, all on the AW, last time making hard work of landing odds of 2-11 in a 6f Wolverhampton novice (first run after being gelded, third has since won handicaps off 50 and 55); not obviously well treated on handicap/turf debut but step up to 1m should suit and stable in fine form.

Better with each of her three starts to date, culminating in a third from the front to Ottoman Prince over C&D last month; was inclined to race freely back from a break that night and is at least entitled to close the gap on 7lb better terms.
