Won his novice here over 6f on good to soft; has returned this season in good heart with excellent efforts at Newmarket (6f, good; 7f; soft), and the form of his win there is already looking very solid; has a 6lb rise to deal with but very much going the right way.

Built upon the promise of his first three runs (on good/good to firm) when readily winning a Goodwood maiden (6f, good to soft) at 4-9 last October; fair fourth of eight on nursery debut at Newbury (6f, heavy) 13 days later and he may have more to offer this year; not discounted.
