Record is 3-5; came up short in Newmarket Group 3 on last appearance (gelded since) but progressive otherwise and was impressive in a handicap there (1m1f, good to firm) the time before; represents a stable in great form and likely still has more to offer; remains of interest.

Unexposed colt with impressive form-figures; well suited by stepping up to 1m1f when winning C&D handicap two weeks ago by a wide margin, travelling strongly and surging clear; rain-softened ground would be an unknown (raced only on good/good to firm) but he's improving fast and well worth his place in this higher grade.
