Weak 15-2 shot when a well-held fourth at Salisbury (6f, good) on recent debut but he ran green before making some late promising late headway in that race; should know more this time and he's a likely improver on this step up in trip.

Kept on for promising fourth on debut at Salisbury (6f, good) in August and won Leicester novice (7f, good to firm) 13 days later; he's down the pecking order on form but should be suited by the likely strong pace in this big field and is in good hands to continue to progress.

Form & Verdict

New Bay colt who made a promising start when going close at Epsom (7f, soft; 14-1) three weeks ago; that form has been boosted by the runner-up since and he sets a clear standard on that clear third; key player.

Out of a middle-distance winner; duly proved suited by the step up to 1m2f at Windsor (good; handicap debut) most recently, beating Spaceport and Monterosa; raised just 3lb and may well build on that success.

Went close at Epsom (7f, soft; 14-1) in a race that worked out well and perhaps unsuited by the fast ground when a little below that level at Leicester; this surface should be fine, as will the step up to 1m; strong contender.

18-1 at Pontefract (6f, good) two weeks ago and he never got involved before finishing a well-held fifth of nine; now goes up in trip but plenty of progress is needed and he's probably one for further down the line.

Well held in three starts over 6f/7f on turf/Polytrack for Clive Cox last year; makes his stable/handicap debut (same owners) in a first-time tongue-tie after six months off having been gelded in the meantime; longer trip should suit on breeding and is a half-brother to two multiple course winners; no great surprise if he steps up.
