Gelded and sent handicapping when justifying favouritism at Newbury (1m2f, good) and Kempton (1m3f, AW); the latter was by a short head but the first two were 7l clear and, although he's up 5lb, it will be no shock if this improver completes his hat-trick.

Fair form (one 1m4f AW win) in 11-race Flat career; went close in the mud on two of first three starts over hurdles, before an improved show to win well in five-runner race at Newbury (2m, heavy) two weeks ago; it was not sufficiently improved to think he's a player at this top level, though; usual rider Ben Ffrench Davis would normally claim 5lb, but not in this.

Has made the frame in 1m3f/1m4f maidens in Ireland on her last three starts; in view of her pedigree she has the potential to be better than her handicap debut mark and she could be a player in first-time cheekpieces.
