Form & Verdict

Well beaten in first three starts over 1m on turf and found himself with too much to do after meeting early trouble on handicap/AW debut at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta; first start since being gelded) this month; may appreciate this longer trip on breeding so worth a second look; hood worn the last twice now missing.

Came well clear with Twilight Guest when scoring over C&D last summer, and he raced too freely when a beaten favourite here on his only subsequent start; has since left Roger Teal; may not be fully exposed after just six runs and market support would be significant.

Form & Verdict

0-12; form of his third of ten on his only previous AW start at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) in May has worked out well and he drops to this level for the first time, but he has to bounce back from heavy defeats the last twice and the widest stall not ideal over this trip.

Has shown promise on several occasions but was last of seven when favourite over C&D on his latest start which took his overall record to 0-17; perhaps he made his challenge too soon that day and he certainly can't be ruled out, but he's proving expensive to follow.

The addition of cheekpieces and a switch to front-running tactics paid dividends when making all over 1m here last October; at least as good in two runs last month, latterly chasing home a progressive one at Brighton 12 days ago; should go well.

Out of the frame in all seven starts over 7f-8.6f; drops in grade and there is some stamina in his pedigree with the longer trip in mind, but he will need to improve for the cheekpieces.
