Form & Verdict

Out of half-sister to Group 1-winning sprinter Muhaarar; immediate promise in useful 6f maiden at Leicester on debut and was duly too good for his rivals when switched to AW at Lingfield last month (6f); disappointing if he doesn't progress a good deal further; the one to beat despite penalty.

Began 2023 with two AW wins; fair Listed fifth last May and he was beaten just 2l into fifth in a red-hot race at York on his handicap debut last June; the first three home in that race are now BHA-rated 17lb, 23lb and 13lb higher respectively so it's unlikely this mark is beyond him; absence to contend with (has been gelded) but he's a fascinating runner.

Two 6f AW novice wins early this year; having raced freely he faded into fifth of seven in Listed race at Newbury (6f, good) last month and has to improve upon that form on this handicap debut; however, he could settle better off the strong pace in this big field and retains potential; not written off.

Beaten a head at Newcastle (6f, AW) in February and would surely have won with a clear run; backward steps in two further starts over 6f on Tapeta, the latest his handicap debut in early April (last of nine) and he's since been gelded; moves up from 6f and player if judged on that one, best run.

No progress since handicapping, well adrift over 1m on turf (first-time cheekpieces; refitted today) and failed to find much over 1m1f here since; needs to prove stamina for this far although dam did win over 1m5f on turf.

Made the frame in two AW handicaps this spring (1m/8.6f) but was safely held in basement-grade classified on last month's turf debut (7f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces); clearly needs to do much better over new trip here.
