Form & Verdict

Won maiden at Goodwood (1m2f, good to soft) last September; limitations exposed when making no impact since in two Group 3s and two Listed races; tongue tied last time; while this task should be more viable, plenty may also depend on having cheekpieces added.

Sole AW run saw him last of ten at 100-1 on Southwell Tapeta in late December; that was in the middle of a modest campaign switched to hurdling by new yard and he needs something like his peak Flat form (1m4f win last June in first-time cheekpieces, for Andrew Balding) to hold a winning chance on this first start since leaving Tony Charlton.

Similar form taking three minor honours last August-September; bit better when returning from wind surgery to go down by a short head in five-runner race at Haydock (1m2f, good to firm) in first-time cheekpieces on handicap/seasonal debut, making most; the winner was 10-11 in hat-trick bid; shapes as if worth a go at 1m4f, despite pedigree.

Unable to win in these colours on the Flat but there was plenty of promise, notably when third in a 1m4f handicap at Salisbury (RPR 83); seems to go on most ground and should make a hurdler; cheekpieces sported of late are left off.

Progressed well on AW to win his last three starts as 2yo (1m, 8.6f and 1m2f) and met with plenty of interference, looking better than the bare result, when tenth of 14 in bunched finish to the London Gold Cup at Newbury (1m2f, good; 50-1) in May; however, finishing 10l behind Nader King back at Newbury (1m2f, good to firm) last time takes the gloss off his credentials.
