Fared best of the newcomers when third of nine on his Ayr debut (6f, good; 18-1) last month; the way he performed there and his pedigree suggest he will appreciate further in time, so the same trip on a sharper track may not be ideal.

Bagged a notable pay cheque in a sales race at Naas (6f, soft; first win under similar conditions) but now has to bounce back from a modest run at Newmarket when conditions were easier than the official good to firm (ground was changed to good after heavy rain); has a bit to find even on his Irish form.

Form & Verdict

The most exposed in the field and the outside stall not ideal even in a field of this size, but he does have course experience, finishing second of five (5f, soft) in May and making all in a C&D novice last month; creditable fourth of nine in a Haydock nursery (6f, good to firm) six days ago; respected back here.

Has only a Chester novice to show for his eight runs but it was a very strong handicap at York (6f) in which he finished seventh of 16 last time; goes on soft ground and can see him having a say if staying this new trip.

Found further improvement to be a 2l third on soft ground at Chester (6f) and has been gelded since a quiet nursery debut at Glorious Goodwood; has to be of interest in a novice that lacks any depth.

Didn't fire behind Hedge Fund at Bath on his seasonal return 19 days ago but heavy ground makes that effort easy to excuse (reportedly unsuited by soft once as a 2yo); suspicion he's well handicapped and he's one of the more interesting runners.

Confirmed the promise of his Salisbury debut (6f, good to firm) when justifying odds-on favouritism at the same track two weeks later; his form dipped at Chester on his third start where soft ground was put forward as the excuse; with that in mind he's hard to support with confidence on today's surface; gelded since last run.

Second at Salisbury (6f, good to firm) on debut then went one better there (6f, good to firm) in a race that has worked out well; reportedly unsuited by soft going when unplaced at odds-on in Chester novice latest; retains potential and he could go well if back on better ground.
