0-5 on turf in Ireland last year but a well-backed winner on his stable/AW debut at Southwell (5f) in February; good second there since in his first handicap and he's a key player if transferring improvement back to turf.

Promise in Ireland, including when just over 8l behind Hispanic at the Curragh, but his form has taken off for the Barrons this season; easy winner of a Musselburgh 5f handicap (good to soft) in April and although beaten a head by Danger Alert at Chester last time, this one was poorly drawn and made up a lot of ground out wide on the home turn; 11lb higher mark has kicked in this time but the Musselburgh run offers hope that he's still well treated; unraced on faster than good (dam won on good to firm); greatly respected.

Big step forward for new yard this year, winning a Southwell maiden and impressive in his first turf handicap, over 5f at Musselburgh ten days ago (good to soft); is due an 11lb rise in future so has a big chance without a penalty if navigating the widest draw.

Form & Verdict

Fair seventh last May/June on his two runs for Godolphin (6f, good) and, following 35,000gns sale and a gelding operation, he won at Newcastle (5f, AW) in February on his stable debut; this lightly raced sort is open to improvement and could have a part to play on handicap debut.

Not had much luck with one thing and another but continued the progression at a short price last time; this is deeper off a 3lb higher mark but he won't mind any rain, having gone close over C&D from a wide stall (heavy) in the spring; respected.

Has proved ultra-consistent since returning in April (record 332421134) and did well to finish fourth of 12 at Haydock (5f, good) a fortnight ago having lost a shoe; likely to give his running once again and one for the shortlist.

Fair efforts on first two 2yo starts (5f, good to soft/AW) before going close at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) in August; has since left Declan Carroll (remains in same ownership) and been gelded; pedigree suggests he could evolve into something better than a 71-rated sprinter; not discounted.
