Made the frame in 6f contests at Newbury and Ascot last month, both times keeping on and leaving the impression he'll be suited by this extra furlong; one of the main form contenders.

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.

J: P J McDonald

T: Andrew Balding

Offered promise when third of 11 on his Kempton debut (7f, Polytrack) in August, but the form was ordinary and he didn't really improve when fifth of 11 at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) the following month; may be one for nurseries after this.

Form & Verdict

Thrice-raced colt who has shown progress over 6f, winning at Chelmsford (AW) most recently; should be as effective at this longer distance and holds major claims even with 7lb penalty.

Has done very well since joining this yard and he's 4-4 since this visor went on, with those wins coming over 1m3f-12.4f on Tapeta (including over C&D); he hasn't been winning by far but that means he's climbing the weights only slowly, and he keeps finding the necessary further improvement; player.
