April foal; £75,000 yearling; half-brother to winners Asjad (6f-6.5f; RPR 114) and Silver Surfer (Listed-placed 6f 2yo; 84); dam a Listed-winning sprinter on soft ground (105); interesting on pedigree and well worth a market check.

Highly tried since winning a maiden over C&D (soft) in May, but twice placed in Listed company and not disgraced when seventh of the 22 runners in the valuable sales contest at York (6f, good to firm) last time; makes his nursery debut, but the outside stall does make things a bit tricky.

April foal; 32,000gns yearling; half-brother to five winners out of a useful 7f-1m winner (RPR 102); not as precociously bred as some in here and perhaps one for a bit further down the line.

Fourth over 5f on debut at this meeting last season before winning over 6f here the following month and later runner-up in a handicap sprint at Windsor off this mark; only seventh back in a novice the final time on his step up to 7f but he's had wind surgery since then and retains potential.

Won a novice (6f, good) on the other course here in May and he went close on his nursery debut at Windsor (6f, good; RPR 84) last month; looks interesting on that form but he has a mixed record in his six starts so far and was disappointing at Goodwood (6f, good to soft) last time; comes with risks attached at this new trip.

OUR TIP

Form: 1 D

Last run: 9 days

W: 9st 10lb

2 yo Colt

OR:

Form & Verdict

Favourite for debut at Southwell nine days ago (5f, Tapeta) and his supporters barely had an anxious moment, as he showed bright speed and drew clear in the closing stages; he was inclined to edge left when asked for his effort but it was likely greenness rather than anything sinister; concedes 6lb to interesting newcomers but his experience will stand him in good stead.

Won two 7f nurseries last autumn (including here on good ground) before campaign concluded with good third at Newmarket (7f, soft); reappeared with a win at Kempton (7f, AW) a fortnight ago and he's a half-brother to a 1m2f winner, so there can be optimism that he'll stay this far; one to consider.
