Promising third over C&D (good to soft) in July on second start and won Thirsk novice (7f, good) next time; didn't see out 1m on nursery debut at Ayr (1m, good to soft) three weeks ago and he retains potential.

Showed plenty of promise on debut when 2l-fourth at 10-1 in a York novice (7f, good to soft, Sailthisshipalone third) last month, travelling well for a long way but running as though just needing the run; should improve; chance.

Ran four times last year, going close in Thirsk novice (7f, good) on second start and showing improved form to win sales race at 28-1 at York (7f, soft) in October when last seen; this half-brother to Group 3 winner Dabyah could have more to offer but others have greater substance to their form.

Disappointing at Carlisle (1m, good to firm) last month but failed to settle and went off hard before fading; promise on his two previous runs over this C&D (good to soft) and at Thirsk (7f, good), when closely matched with Sailthisshipalone each time, and he's not ruled out each-way now back at 7f.
