Form & Verdict

Solid start for new yard when third over 6f on turf in recent months and he's equally as good over 7f; has dipped to a mark in the 60s for the first time and there's a feeling he could click for this stable before long; player if taking to AW at the first time of asking.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner as a 2yo who is closely matched on C&D form with Concert Boy and Sidney's Son in May; arrives on the back of a couple of creditable placed efforts on turf and should go close at the very least if pulling out a bit more for first-time cheekpieces.

Three of his four wins have come here (7f/1m) and he may have been unfortunate not to finish closer when third of nine over C&D a week ago (form since boosted); remains off his last winning mark, but this established hold-up performer may not get the race run to suit.
