Wolverhampton novice winner (7f, AW) last autumn and ran well when second of 15 behind a subsequent winner at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) in April; didn't enjoy the best of runs when fourth of seven there (1m2f, good) last month, but it didn't cost him the race; bit more needed.

Made all in novice at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in October; gelded before handicap debut here (1m, good to soft) four weeks ago and it was an eyecatching performance to be second of 15, given how long he spent on the bridle looking for a clear run; should stay 1m2f and although raised 3lb, he looks better than that.

Late foal; sole turf start was at Ascot (good) on debut, promising; made all at Wolverhampton (7f) in October and creditable fifth of 12 in another novice at Lingfield (1m) on reappearance last month; gelded since; needs improvement on this handicap debut but early days.

First three starts on the Wolverhampton AW, winning an 8.6f novice in December (form worked out very well); didn't enjoy the clearest of runs when fouth of six on his turf debut in a first-time visor (now removed) at Newbury (1m2f, good to firm) ten days ago, but was still comfortably held; needs to step up from that.

Goodwood novice winner (1m, soft) last summer and ran well on his return from 260 days off when beaten 2l into third of 11 at Doncaster (1m, good) a fortnight ago (winner was completing a four-timer); shaped then as though this extra furlong would suit (backed up by his pedigree) and respected off the same mark.

Fulfilled previous promise when making all at Goodwood (1m, soft) and was eased off once his chance had gone when sent off the 2-1 favourite for his handicap debut at Newbury (7f, good) on his final 2yo start; good pedigree (by Frankel out of US turf Grade 1 winner) and interesting to see if his supporters' return on reappearance.

Placed in both starts on the AW at Wolverhampton (7f/8.6f) late last year, but well beaten in both starts since returning in April including when seventh of eight on handicap debut at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) last month; stable won this last year, but this gelding needs to bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Two wins this year, a novice at Lingfield (1m, AW) in January (form worked out well) and a narrow success over a subsequent winner at Goodwood (1m, good) last month; didn't stay 1m2f on penultimate start, but this trip should be within range and shortlisted from his 4lb higher mark for stable that has taken two of the last nine runnings.

Can front-run; registered two wins and a second over 1m on good or good to firm last May-August, his highlights on turf last year; reappeared with AW win at Wolverhampton in February and although trying to overcome a wide draw in warm race there in March did not work out, that shouldn't attract much criticism; needs a career best but not dismissed.

Sole win in ten starts came in a four-runner Kempton nursery (6f, AW; first-time cheekpieces) last August; close fourth of 11 on his first start at Meydan (7f, good) in January, but didn't back it up in three subsequent starts there; returns from four months off with a bit to prove.
