Form & Verdict

Successful off 1lb higher at Lingfield a year ago and bounced back from some lesser efforts when 4l second over C&D in first-time blinkers (retained today) when last seen in September; not an easy draw for one who usually races prominently.

Firmly back on the up with wins over C&D (beat Aguaplano by 1l) and at Wolverhampton on last two starts; needed only one smack to come clear in the final 1f at Wolverhampton and there could easily be more to come from him; well drawn and should make a bold bid for the hat-trick.

Raced only on turf, winning a 1m Bellewstown in April; tongue-tie first time (retained today) when very good third of 13 in 1m2f 3yo handicap at Royal Ascot in June when last seen (final start for Aidan O'Brien); subsequently gelded; new connections went to 120,000gns to acquire him in July; it's taken a bit of time to get him back to the track but he's an interesting contender on this AW debut, particularly if the market vibes are strong.
