Won at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) for Sir Michael Stoute as a 2yo and was having his first start on AW since when beaten two necks into third of 13 at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) in August; has fitness to prove after 133 days off, but each-way claims if ready to roll and handling Tapeta.

Rarely seen on grass (0-9) these days and AW form so far this year has been below par, but he is 7lb lower than when third of six at Newmarket (1m2f, good) last May so he can't be completely ruled out.

Won two 7f novices on turf/Polytrack earlier in the year and has run well in both starts since returning to the AW last month, finshing second of 12 at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) and third of nine at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack); still unexposed and being out of a Galileo mare the longer trip should be within range; respected in first-time cheekpieces.

Both wins in 7f novices, on turf and AW, but only just lost out after sustained duel with the winner over 1m3f at Southwell on final 3yo start; ran as though the run was needed on belated return at Chelmsford in August (first-time cheekpieces, retained); may yet do better.

J: Sam James

Prominent racer; feasibly weighted seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back Beverley wins (1m2f; has risen a combined total of 5lb); the stable is going really well, he's versatile ground wise, and this sharp track should suit; enthusiasm is tempered by inconclusive stamina over 1m4f.

Form & Verdict

All five wins have come over 9.5f on Wolverhampton Tapeta (the last two from 1lb lower) and far from disgraced when third of seven behind a filly who was completing a five-timer there (1m4f) this month; not out of it if as effective on his first visit here.
