Novice wins came over 7.5f/1m but he looks a middle-distance colt judged on his staying-on third in 1m2f handicap at Glorious Goodwood; raced only four times and likely to do better still; interesting off unaltered mark upped further in trip.

Hung left but won nicely at Chester (7.6f, good) in May on second start; followed up in another novice at Windsor (1m, good to firm) nearly five weeks ago, edging the verdict after again wandering; shapes as if 1m2f is worth a go and that he should improve again as he gets more professional.

Made a successful handicap debut at Haydock (1m, good) in April last year and placed in three consecutive starts off this mark on turf in the summer; ended the campaign on a quiet note, though, and his two AW efforts haven't been quite so hot; market may indicate what is expected after five months off.
