Form & Verdict

All five runs at 7f; 3-3 on the AW and well beaten in both starts on turf, albeit he faced a stiff task in a Listed race at Epsom last time (first start since being gelded) and the track may not have suited; too early to suggest he can't act on grass and can't be ruled out.

Winner of four of his seven starts, most notably a front-running 7f win at Sandown off 8lb lower in June; soft ground may not have been ideal when midfield at Chester four weeks ago (Listed); drops to 6f for the first time but he has plenty of speed and the best could still be to come from him.

Goes well with positive tactics and got off the mark after a gelding operation by making all in maiden at Bath (5.7f, good to soft; handles good to firm) last month; could be unexposed as a sprinter (campaigned at 7f/1m earlier in career) and he needs serious consideration back in a handicap.

Twice made the frame at Group 3 level after winning a Chepstow novice (7f. soft) last September and his ninth of 13 (behind Classic) on handicap debut at Goodwood (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago not hard to forgive on account of the draw; has run well on fast ground and no surprise to see an improved effort in the first-time cheekpieces.

Easily off the mark in a Newmarket novice (7f, soft) last August, but found 1m too far on his final outing and ran poorly in the Group 3 Greenham at Newbury (7f, soft) on his return; only sixth of 13 on handicap debut at Goodwood (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago, but that effort can be marked up as he completely blew the home bend; better expected.

Off the mark in a Kempton novice (7f, AW) in January (form worked out well) and after a short break he followed up on handicap debut at Newmarket (7f, good; first-time tongue-tie) in April; meeting trouble at the start and dropping in trip did for him in his hat-trick bid at Doncaster (6f, good) four weeks ago, but could easily bounce back.

Not at his best the last twice but it's easy to make a case for him being ahead of the handicapper on his best efforts, namely a C&D novice win (well franked) and when beating 16 rivals at Newmarket in April; needs serious consideration.

Won two 7f AW novices at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton last month, comfortably defying a 7lb penalty on the second occasion; the form of both races hasn't been avertised by those in behind, but he remains an unknown quantity now making his handicap/turf debut and is worthy of respect.

Form & Verdict

Two wins from 14 starts have both been on Polytrack, the latest at Lingfield (7f) in December, while he only just lost out to a stablemate in a Listed race over the same C&D in March; well held the last twice, though, and looks up against it conceding weight to less exposed rivals back on turf.
