Displayed big jolt of improvement when quickening clear to win comfortably on handicap debut at Chelmsford (6f, AW) on Thursday; encounters different trip-and-surface combination here but could be very hard to beat under 6lb penalty.

Remarkable improver this term, mostly over 6f; came up slightly short in the Shergar Cup Sprint here but quickly regained the winning thread in C&D event (good to firm; made all to beat Popmaster) four weeks ago; now 7-8 in handicaps and may not have finished progressing yet; shortlisted.

Generally disappointing since joining current stable last September; put in pretty good front-running shift when fifth of 14 at Bath (1m, soft) last month and is now 1lb lower than when ready winner of Ffos Las nursery (7.3f, good) for George Boughey last summer but others appeal more all the same.

Improved to win 7f AW maiden in September and kept on for respecable sixth on seasonal/handicap debut at Kempton (1m, AW) three weeks ago; needs to build on that recent effort and prove he's fully effective on turf, but may still have potential.

Opened account at 11th attempt, with ridden-out success at Lingfield (7f, AW) a fortnight ago; today's return to turf won't be a probably and a recent 3lb rise does not look excessive; ought to make his presence felt again.
