Unable to justify warm favouritism when only fourth of eight on last month's handicap debut at Wetherby (1m2f, good to firm) but remains unexposed and may benefit from combination of drop back in trip and first-time cheekpieces.

Gelded son of a US dirt/turf winner over a bit further who went for 100,000gns as a yearling; stable done much better with AW than turf runners so far this year and the market will show what's expected.
