Well treated on his progressive form last spring (won on soft at Ascot off 2lb higher) and he did make some late headway from the rear in the Spring Cup at Newbury on his reappearance a fortnight ago; no shock were he to bounce back to form with a bang.

Two starts on the AW have resulted in a narrow win at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) and a narrow defeat here (1m); has run well fresh before so the 221-day absence not the end of the world, but whether this short a trip will suit remains to be seen.

Won at Thirsk (7f, soft) last September on sole 2yo start; only fourth of five in 1m AW conditions race on recent reappearance but it wasn't a bad run and this well-bred sort retains potential for his good yard.

Won four times on turf last year (6f-7.4f) and returned from break with close third of four in February (8.6f, AW); unplaced on AW the next twice, however, and could be vulnerable off top weight now back in a handicap.

All four wins were last summer, beaten nine times this season but there has been the occasional good run and he's becoming well handicapped; goes on good to soft but anything softer would be a worry; gets new blinkers.

Four-time winner but now exposed and had no excuses from a good position when fifth here last week (1m, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces); best form is at shorter.

Form & Verdict

Fair third of six in Listed race at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) last August and good to soft ground may not have suited on nursery debut at Ascot (7f) in September; he's unexposed but is not obviously well treated off his current mark and needs to be better than ever on this reappearance.

Sole win in 6f maiden as 2yo; had a difficult 3yo season but he wasn't far away in well-contested races at 1m and 7f (on good) last spring and is much lower in the weights now; can improve on a respectable reappearance on the AW 11 days ago now back on turf; every chance.

Both wins for the Crisford stable came over 7f on AW; found it tough going in handicaps in the second half of 2023 and a watching brief is the percentage call on this first outing for a new stable after a 36,000gns sale last October.

Down the field at York last October on nursery debut and soundly beaten fifth of nine on reappearance at Musselburgh; however, he may have needed that last run and a case can be made on his best 2yo efforts; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Having been gelded he left last autumn's first two runs (turf) behind to win a 1m AW novice; his half-brother Outgate was highly progressive for this yard (won here) and he could prove to be better than his opening mark.

Good efforts on AW in the last three of his four handicaps, most recently when fifth of 14 at Chelmsford (1m; 7-2 favourite) on his return in March; should benefit from that run but he's now 1-7 and still has something to prove on turf; mixed messages.

Lightly raced 4yo who looks better on the AW (form reads 132) than on turf (379) so far, going down by half a length to a triple subsequent winner at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) last October; off for five months, but has a good record fresh and one for the shortlist.
