Runner-up on debut at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) in June and, after well-beaten Listed fifth at Ascot (7f, good), he won a maiden at Newbury (7f, good to soft) last month; goes back up in grade today but he's highly regarded by trainer who won this in 2017 with Tip Two Win; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Has worn a hood in both his runs; shaped with promise when fourth at Chester on his debut and he built on that when a front-running second at Haydock (6f, good to firm; 3-1) two weeks ago; sets a fair standard on that form and this step up in trip should suit on pedigree; key player.
