Form & Verdict

Won here (1m2f, good to soft) last September and made all in first-time cheekpieces when upped in trip at Newmarket (1m4f, good) last month; just ten races and could have more to offer in the headgear and over this distance; player if the ground isn't an issue (unraced on firmer than good).

Two wins last September and made further advances this season, making all in three of four starts with cheekpieces; latest win was on step back to 1m2f in valuable Racing League race at Yarmouth, holding on by a head; up another 4lb but, given his record, it's hard to rule out further progress.

Two wins last September (1m2f, good to soft) and even better in these cheekpieces this season, making all over 1m4f at Newmarket (good) and Haydock (good to firm) in recent months; the winning run was ended in the Old Newton Cup back at Haydock but he progressed again in third; a must for the shortlist under Frankie Dettori.

This is his first run since October 2021 and he needs to prove how much ability he retains; however, he's on a competitive mark judged on his best efforts and his stable is in fine form; not ruled out.

Both wins over 1m4f at Hamilton, including penultimate start (3lb higher today), but arguably his most promising performance came when beaten a head over 1m6f at Nottingham last October when denied a clear run before finishing strongly; form dipped on latest outing when tried for the first time on good to firm; however, he probably retains overall potential and has plenty of stamina in the pedigree, so looks very interesting on this AW debut.
