Made a promising start when a 13-2 second here (1m) in February but he failed to build on that when only ninth of 12 at Doncaster (1m, good to firm) 19 days ago; this new trip should be within range but he has something to prove after that last run and others are preferred.

Camelot half-brother to useful 1m AW 2yo/1m2f winner Morning Poem (RPR 97); didn't live up to market expectations at Chester (1m4f, soft; 100-30) last month but he ran green after a slow start and did make some encouraging late headway; now drops in trip but he should know much more this time and is a likely improver on his second start.

Picked up for 19,000gns from Godolphin at the start of the year after which he underwent wind surgery and was gelded; weak 11-1 shot at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta) in November but he gradually worked his way into contention before staying on well to beat an odds-on rival; this is tougher under a penalty back in trip but he has a striking pedigree and could have good future; respected with equipment added.
