Made a winning debut for David Simcock at Epsom (7f, good to firm) last September, but then made little impression in two 7f Group 3 contest at Newmarket (good to firm/heavy); makes his stable debut (same owner) after six months off and this looks a tough ask despite the small field.

Both runs over 7f on good to firm; rare debut winner for this yard when nicely on top in the finish at Epsom and confirmed himself to be useful when not seen to best effect in a Group 3 here, having been last at one point before running on well; conditions are a grey area, though the dam handled them.

£130,000 Blue Point colt; big improvement on his second start when a 4l winner at Chepstow (6f, good to firm) in June and he wasn't disgraced in a Listed race in France (sixth of ten) the following month; has a penalty back in a novice but he's still unexposed and is respected at this new trip.
