Beaten in a tight finish at Hamilton (6f, good) first time out and it's not been easy since, contesting a good novice at Newmarket before finishing last in a Listed race at Redcar; potentially well treated for handicap debut on that initial effort; now gelded; unraced on ground softer than good; interesting.

Beaten in a tight finish at Hamilton (6f, good) first time out but even that form leaves him with plenty to find with a few of these, and Newmarket next time was very disappointing; no maiden has won this in the last decade.

Down the field in sales races the last twice and he's unproven on slow ground; however, his novice win at Carlisle (6f, good to firm) in July suggests he could be a force off this nursery debut mark if back on song.
