Form & Verdict

Created a highly favourable impression with his 6l debut success at Kempton (1m4f) last month, striding clear powerfully in the closing stages; useful prospect who commands respect under 5lb penalty.

Couple of AW novice wins early in year; has shown he's effective on turf with creditable efforts at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) and Haydock (1m6f, good) the last twice; could go well again.

J: Joe Fanning

T: Charlie Johnston

Two-time AW novice winner who returned to form when second at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) recently; this is tougher but he hung last time so could be better suited by this flat track, and his pedigree provides hope he'll improve for the step up in trip; no surprise to see another good run.

Form & Verdict

Both starts at Kempton; close third over 1m3f in December, then proved rather disappointing over 1m4f having failed to settle to some extent; could well confirm the debut promise with hood now applied.

Beat only one rival in 1m2f contest here just before Christmas, having blown the start; however, he's in good hands and may do better granted a cleaner break this time.
