Had mixed record over 7f/1m in his first five runs but he ended last season with 6f wins at Chepstow (maiden) and Lingfield (AW handicap); up 5lb but he's open to more progress as a sprinter this term and is an interesting contender on his return; been gelded.

Behind Laoisman and may have been flattered by his proximity when 66-1 third of four on Windsor debut (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago but, nevertheless, significant positives can be taken from that performance.

Out of a Listed winner and made quite pleasing debut when keeping-on fifth at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) in June; subsequent ninth of 14 came in a very strong Newbury novice and he ought to get much closer to the target in this much easier race.

String of minor honours at short prices on AW early in the year before wind surgery; not so good with cheekpieces/blinkers in his two runs since and left George Boughey for 1,500gns in July; reverting to last summer's turf form, or last winter's on AW, would see him placed again.
