Form & Verdict

Three 7f nursery wins last season (good/good to soft) came at a cost rating-wise, and beaten roughly 2l in his two appearances this year, over 1m (good to soft) and 7.5f (soft); on the plus side, he's well drawn to go forward and getting back on drier ground is no bad thing.

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.

Highly tried at times but didn't really go on after last season's successful debut; nicely progressive this term and made all in a 7f handicap (good) at York's recent Dante meeting; only 3lb higher here but will have his work cut from stall 11 if he's to dominate this field in the same manner.

Form & Verdict

Fulfilled earlier promise when making all in Yarmouth novice (6f, good to firm; long odds-on) and then improved again to finish second in first-time cheekpieces at Salisbury (7f); can be forgiven his final failure at Listed level on account of racing too freely in first-time blinkers on heavy ground; debatable whether he's well handicapped but open to improvement at three.

Soft ground reportedly to blame for his no-show in the Greenham (25-1), although he did win on soft in his first season during which he also pushed Dante winner The Foxes to a neck in one of his maidens; wouldn't be without hope if able to shrug aside that latest disappointment.

Won his novice on fast ground; had Tafreej and Dark Thirty behind when second at Newbury (7f, soft) in April and perhaps found 1m a stretch when not so clever at Newmarket; solid each-way claims on that penultimate effort, especially with new pilot Alec Voikhansky good value for his 5lb claim.
