Form & Verdict

160,000gns yearling who has finished unplaced in his first three starts, but has improved in each of them and was beaten less than 3l into fourth of 14 over 7f here three weeks ago (winner has gone in again since); not guaranteed to appreciate the extra furlong for this handicap debut on breeding, but still worth a second look with a tongue-tie given a go.

Looked progressive when beating 12 rivals at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) in February, but blotted his copybook back there (1m) later in month; that not the first time he has proved a disappointing favourite, though, and has been given a break since; a player if he can bounce back.
