Brother to 1m-1m2f winner Nausha (Group 3; RPR 103) and half-brother to winners Nagano (1m2f/1m4f; 108), Narynkol (1m4f AW; 89) and Naizagai (2m1f hurdle); unraced dam closely related to 2yo Group 1 winners Sequoyah (7f) & Listen (1m); entered in the Derby; interesting newcomer for a yard who can have them ready first time out.

Heavy ground perhaps not ideal on his debut in October (1m) and he fared much better when a front-running fourth of 13 over C&D last month; should have more to come and he needs serious consideration.

Improved results in his three runs as a 2yo, making most when he took minor honours twice over 1m2f on Lingfield AW; withdrawn from a maiden last week when the ground was soft; makes handicap debut and should be open to progress as 3yo.

Got closer in each of his runs as a 2yo and his latest Lingfield conqueror (1m2f) wasn't far away from following up next time; connections have declined the opportunity to go handicapping off a BHA mark of 75 and others in here should be better than that level.

Solid start when third of nine at Wolverhampton last month (extended 1m); no obvious excuses when only seventh upped to the extended 1m1f there 19 days ago and sixth-placed The Bunt looks the more interesting runner to come out of that race.

Fair form shown in two runs for Simon and Ed Crisford in 2022; off 12 months (gelded/had wind op) and not discredited for his new yard when sixth of 12 in 1m4f Wolverhampton maiden last month; considered now up in trip for his handicap debut.

He has shown some ability in his two runs in 1m events at Kempton this winter and stepping up to 1m2f should suit; middle-distance handicaps likely to suit better after this though.

Improving with experience and she followed her unlucky fourth at Kempton with an impressive win at Southwell 16 days ago; that was a lowly Class 6 nursery but the performance was backed up by the clock and she could improve again for today's longer trip; she will need to if she is to defy a penalty from the widest stall though.
