In good hands and he could leave his debut run well behind at some point, but he needs a huge step forward here having been a well-beaten last of eight at 18-1 at Newcastle (1m, AW) in February on his first start.

Acts on soft; the promise shown this spring, including at this track, has not been fulfilled but he did shape as if staying 1m4f at Thirsk on latest outing; that performance was the first suggestion that he might get 1m6f.

Second foal; half-brother to French 1m2f winner Pervade (RPR 102); dam 9.5f-1m4f US Grade 3 winner, half-sister to St Leger winner Logician; fellow debutant Crystal Mariner may be the yard's chief hope under Richard Kingscote but his top stable has an excellent record here and he's not ruled out.

Made debut in April; won novices at Nottingham (1m2f, heavy) in May and Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) in June; well-backed favourite for handicap at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good) and did well to finish fifth of 19 considering how close he raced to the strong pace, leading 2f out to 1f out; probably fine back at 1m2f and should go very well.

Made debut in April; better the further he went in his 1m2f win on heavy at Nottingham on second start and there was lots to like about the way he travelled and knuckled down to deal with Inquiring Minds at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) in another novice three weeks ago; promising handicap debutant.

Won a 1m2f maiden at Newcastle last May and further improvement when third under a penalty at Redcar (1m2f, good); dropped away tamely when stepped up to 1m4f for his handicap debut at Newmarket last July; absent since (has undergone gelding and wind operations) but it's potentially significant that connections have stuck with him; it'll be very interesting to see how he goes in the betting.

9-1, promising fifth of 12 on debut at York (1m, good to soft) last October; he's by Kingman out of the smart Sharja Queen, who showed her best form over 1m2f, and he's open to plenty of improvement this year.
