Juvenile season ended with 6f wins at Pontefract (good) and Newbury (heavy); beaten favourite over 7f at Goodwood (soft) on reappearance, not shaping as if he's crying out for 1m; may not see this out.

Signed off as a 2yo with two 6f wins, the second in a heavy-ground handicap; reportedly benefited from the faster surface (good to firm) when going away in the finish at York (first run at 1m) and this stiffer track promises to suit him well; going the right way and Frankie rides for the first time.

Not much luck with one thing and another last year and this mark should be within range; he was fine with 1m2f last summer, however, and this trip looks a bare minimum back from seven months off for a yard also repsonsible for two others.

In good form after returning in May including wins at Newmarket (1m, soft) and Chester (7.7f, good), but out of the frame in his last three starts; may not want the ground to dry out too much and probably needs further than this now in any case.

Progressive against his own age group, winning two of his first three starts (1m, soft/about 7f, good) before having a troubled run in the Britannia at Royal Ascot; however, he wasn't the same horse at Newmarket in July and an easy 7f may be a bare minimum for him.

Built on 2yo effort to win 7f AW maiden at Lingfield on reappearance; faced a difficult task in 1m conditions stakes at Goodwood since; has a more realistic chance on handicap debut and may still have more to offer.

Going the right way, and a handicap win at Doncaster (1m2f) last month was a career best; however, he's up significantly in grade here and will need another jolt of improvement to follow up; the Doncaster run was his first encounter with soft ground, so the more rain that falls, the better.
