Half-brother to smart Al Mubhir (runs here 2.50); faded right out of it, however, when 14-1 in maiden at Newmarket (1m3f) and 16-1 in six-runner novice at Doncaster (7f, good); at least only one of today's rivals has shown markedly better form, so one to consider.

Flopped when favourite on handicap debut at Hamilton (1m1f, soft) 38 days ago but gelded since and he easily made all in a maiden over this C&D (good to soft) in July; this unexposed 3yo is in top hands and it will be no surprise if he plays a leading role in first-time cheekpieces.

Two efforts have been a great deal better than the other three; one of those good runs came last time when fourth of ten from off the pace in handicap at Windsor (1m2f, good; unraced on softer) in a first-time visor, which is retained; on that form, this is a golden opportunity.

Down the field when sent off just 13-2 for Huntingdon bumper last November; caught the eye when fifth in 9.4f Wolverhampton novice in February, 12 days before a lesser show at Lingfield (both AW); down to 1m today; probably more interesting in handicaps after this but it's a weak field.
