Useful as 2yo; slow start to this campaign but he was gelded in May and hasn't looked back since a hood was added, winning 5f handicaps here and at Ascot (on good or quicker); still on the up but slower ground does ask a different question of him.

Smart as 2yo on turf, particularly when runner-up in good 6f Listed race; this season did not get off to a good start but he looked more his old self when dropped to 5f in first-time hood (retained) at Doncaster in July (good to firm), moving smoothly past his rivals to win neatly; up 7lb in a better race but there is more to come from him.

Useful sprinter on his day and he produced a career-best effort to win at Catterick in June (5f, good to firm); ran to a similar level at Doncaster four weeks ago and he's well drawn to attack; record on slower than good uninspiring though and the weather forecast is a concern.

Has drawn a blank this season but he retains a good chunk of ability, running well at Haydock in June off a 5lb higher mark and beaten under 4l in a hot York sprint latest; capable of a big run but slow starts have been a feature the last twice and that sounds a note of caution.

Well handicapped on best Irish form; however, has a very unconvincing record for new stable this year and current mark reflects his apparent decline; something to prove.
