Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) when last seen almost a year ago, showing that he goes well fresh having been absent for five months since debut; has been gelded since the win; represents top yard and is open to further progress; interesting on return to action.

J: Richard Kingscote

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Won a 1m2f novice on Polytrack at Lingfield last September; successful return from 350-day absence in September, doing well to pull so far clear with one other in a slowly run race at Goodwood (1m2f, good); he'll need to improve again to make a winning handicap debut but that's highly likely given his profile and pedigree.

Nicely bred colt, by Galileo out of a dual Group 1 winner; duly looked above average at Nottingham (1m, good; ridden clear to score by 4l) three weeks ago, building on debut promise and recording a useful RPR; likely to stay this longer distance; top on the figures and commands respect.

All three starts on good ground; won at Nottingham (8.3f) last month on second outing and went very close at Goodwood (1m2f) subsequently, when well clear of the third; his dam was a two-time Group 1 winner and this unexposed 3yo brings potential to his handicap debut; one to consider.
