In good form, having justified favouritism in a couple of notable AW races since being gelded; turf record includes a success in the Coventry as a 2yo and two good efforts at Group 1 level last year; however, needs a clear career-best performance to land this prize.

Form & Verdict

Comfortably won C&D conditions stakes in January and beaten just a neck in Chelmsford handicap (1m2f) last time; others have slightly better form but he can give another good account and might not be far away.

Developed into a smart performer on AW at the start of this year and showed he's equally as good on turf when bagging a 1m Listed event at York (good to firm) in June on final outing for the now-retired Keith Dalgleish; better effort for this yard (but still below his best) when a never-dangerous fourth of five in 1m1f York Group 3 a fortnight ago; more needed.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent sort who benefited from an easy lead to take four-runner Listed race at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) last November when last seen; not guaranteed to back up that form but he won it in fine style in first-time cheekpieces and could have more to offer in the headgear; unraced on Tapeta.
