Form & Verdict

Has reached the frame in all five starts, including a near miss at Leicester (good) last month and a clear third in another 7f nursery at Haydock (heavy) 12 days ago; has something to find back in a novice but he has a progressive profile and is in the mix.

Expert Eye colt out of an unraced half-sister to 1m Group 1 winner Fallen For You; withdrawn on his intended debut here (got loose) in June but he showed plenty of promise with his third of 11 at Ascot (6f, good) three weeks ago; sets a good standard on that form and he's open to progress on this step up in trip.

Showed plenty of ability in three starts last year, having no problem in justifying odds of 1-4 in a Bath maiden (5.7f, good to firm) in September; failed to beat a rival on his Newmarket return (6f, good) last month, though, finishing behind a couple of these; enough to prove after that.

Kept on for promising third on the other Newmarket course (7f, good to firm) last month and did well to finish a close third on recent nursery debut at Bath (1m, good to soft) given that he hung left (perhaps because of the track) and was denied a clear run; may benefit from the first-time blinkers and could play a leading role off the same mark as last time.

Won a novice (6f, good) on the other course here in May and he went close on his nursery debut at Windsor (6f, good; RPR 84) last month; looks interesting on that form but he has a mixed record in his six starts so far and was disappointing at Goodwood (6f, good to soft) last time; comes with risks attached at this new trip.
