Confirmed the promise of his debut fifth at Ascot last September (6f, good) when running out the easy winner of a 6f maiden at Ayr (good to soft) later that month; still looked very green when hitting the front last time and he's open to further progress in 2023; penalised as a result but Billy Loughnane's claim very useful; major player.

Form & Verdict

Promise amidst inexperience on his debut and he was sent off a warm favourite for his second start at Wolverhampton last month, only to bump into an impressive newcomer (since finished sixth in the Nell Gwyn); both those runs were over 7f but he should be quick enough to cope with the drop to 6f; each-way claims.

Form & Verdict

Sent off at 50-1 for his Newcastle debut five weeks ago (6f) but he made a promising start, beaten just half a length despite hanging badly left when asked for his effort (ended up close to the far rail); fair to put that down to greenness on debut and he holds each-way claims with progress likely.

Form & Verdict

He made a promising debut on AW last summer but couldn't build on it at Pontefract two weeks later; gelded over the winter and sent off a warm favourite for his Pontefract reappearance 17 days ago, making the running but run out of the places close home (6f, soft); forecast sounder surface may help and he holds place claims again.
