Both runs at about 7f, with huge improvement in a ten-runner novice at Thirsk (good) four weeks ago when he got on top in the final 1f after some trouble in running; needs another serious step forward and he drops to 6f but that win was delivered in promising style.

Nine-race maiden who appeared to be going the wrong way, but bounced back in the first-time visor when third of nine at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) ten days ago; 1lb lower, but much depends on whether the headgear continues to work.

0-7 but some fair runs since switched to Tapeta and from a bad draw he didn't run too badly last time at Kempton (7f); that might be more his trip but he's still considered.

Had a troubled run when fourth at Redcar (6f, good to firm) and this extra furlong can only assist according to his breeding; likely improver.
