75,000gns yearling and half-brother to a 1m4f winner; 10-1, prominent to a point before weakening into third of eight at Newbury (6f, good); Aljezur's division of that race was marginally faster but the stable's winner of this 12 months ago was only eighth on his debut.

Absent since finishing last in soft-ground Dewhurst on final 2yo outing; progressive on good/firmer otherwise and won the Acomb at York (7f) the time before; improvement required but he receives weight from his older rivals and may not have reached his ceiling after just four outings.

Trainer-owned 68,000euros 2yo and the stable's only juvenile winner in the last five seasons came on the AW; however, ran a big race first time out at Newbury (6f, good; 22-1), overcoming a slow start to chase home a well-touted Hannon horse (runner-up on debut); that form is right up there on RPRs/Topspeed figures.

Wasn't far away in his first four races (6f/7f) and unwise to knock him for heavier defeats the last twice, as he pulled hard during a wide trip when a beaten favourite on handicap debut (1m) and then contested a Listed race for which he was 100-1; could yet prove himself worthy of this sort of mark; gelded since last run.
