Goes into the unknown stamina-wise today and he finished down the field on last month's stable and seasonal debut at Kempton; however, he may have needed that run and he hinted during his 11-race 2yo campaign for Richard Hannon that he'd stay further than 7f (won at that trip); not ruled out.

Eight-race maiden but he's recorded RPRs in the 70s in his last four runs and was beaten less than 2l in a 1m Kempton novice (fourth of 12) on his return last month; this drop back in trip should be fine and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Proved well suited by the switch to AW in Racing League event at Newcastle (7f) two weeks ago, making all to open her account at the fifth attempt; Jonny Peate's useful claim offsets most of the 5lb rise for that win; could well improve further in this sphere and commands respect.
