Form & Verdict

9-1, beaten just a neck on last month's debut at Kempton (7f, AW); that form reads well and he can improve for this longer trip, with his dam a 1m4f/1m6f Listed winner; leading claims for top Newmarket yard.

Left May's debut (7f, good) well behind to win 15-runner maiden at Nottingham (8.3f, good to firm) last month; his dam was a Listed winner and there can be optimism he will continue to improve; respected under penalty.

Improvement is needed (mid-division in the Cambridgeshire here when last seen, at 16-1) but his yard had a good April and this representative should also be interesting, as a lightly raced 4yo who has had two wins at 1m.

Gelded and sent handicapping when justifying favouritism at Newbury (1m2f, good) and Kempton (1m3f, AW); the latter was by a short head but the first two were 7l clear and, although he's up 5lb, it will be no shock if this improver completes his hat-trick.

Has improved with each of his three starts, most recently third at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft) last month; gelded since and this well-bred sort could benefit from the step back up in trip on handicap debut; in top hands and he's one to be interested in.
