Blue Point colt who drew clear in the closing stages, while hanging left, to beat his two rivals at Windsor (soft) last month; the only runner with experience and should give a good account under 6lb penalty.

Easily won three-runner novice on debut at Windsor (5f, soft) and good second at Ascot (5f, soft) next time; down the field in the Woodcote at Epsom (6f, good to firm) most recently but he's likely to be back on a slow surface for this first nursery start and could play a leading role.

Comfortably beat his two rivals at Windsor, then finished second of five at Ascot; both were over 5f on soft; faces a different scenario and bigger field this time but he's a big player on RPRs.

At 625,000gns he was the joint top-priced lot at the Craven Breeze-Up Sale; failed to justify favouritism (8-13) on soft ground at Ascot but he was only beaten 2l and, if taking after his sire Blue Point, this ground will be more up his street.

0-7 but second or third four times, including when third of six on last month's Lingfield return (6f, AW; first start since being gelded); each-way claims if stepping forward for the run and responding positively to the blinkers.

0-6 as a 2yo, running his best race when second of 12 at Kempton in November (6f); less good on his final 2yo start, after which he was gelded; should have a big run in him.

Attractively bred colt, by Blue Point out of a 7f AW winner for his owner; should be well suited by Ascot if taking after his father; interesting contender, especially if the market speaks positively.

Had started to look a bit disappointing prior to winning Windsor handicap (6f, good) 12 days ago; perhaps he'll improve again but he'll need to to follow up in this stronger race off 5lb higher.

Expensive to follow thus far but he has finished second in two of his four starts; heavy ground a valid excuse for a poor run on his handicap debut three weeks ago; down in class and back on a sound surface so some optimism for better this afternoon.
