Progress stalled badly at Newmarket (soft) on final 2yo start when bidding for a 1m2f hat-trick; gelded since; narrowly beat Prepschool at Pontefract (good to soft) two starts ago and may rebound.

Improving colt who is bidding for a 1m2f hat-trick, having scored over this trip in last two novice runs, latest at Pontefract (good to soft) where he beat Prepschool by short head; rock-solid contender who warrants respect.

Form & Verdict

Promising second in 1m novice event at Ripon on Great St Wilfrid day, staying on; gave the impression he'll be suited by this longer distance, contrary to most of his pedigree signals; should progress for yard that is having a great season with 2yos; respected.

Progress in novice/maiden company hit the skids at Newmarket on October, though the warmer race and deeper ground offered excuses; not bred for tonight's challenge but has already defied his pedigree in staying as far as 1m2f, and interesting to see which way he goes for having been gelded.

8,000gns foal, 75,000euros yearling; brother to 1m4f AW winner Haykal, closely related to 7f AW 2yo winner King Of Ithaca, half-brother to two winners; dam 7f-1m2f winner (including 2yo/AW/US turf stakes); appealing pedigree for this context; interesting newcomer.

Form & Verdict

Game winner at Yarmouth (7f) on debut; mixed results in Listed grade since but appeared to run well at Vichy (7f; form working out nicely) on penultimate outing; has middle-distance winners in his pedigree; now upped in trip with headgear applied; major player back at novice level.

Gamely made a winning debut at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm); however, subsequent Listed defeats at Royal Ascot (down the field) and Vichy (fourth) already expose his limitations to some degree; others preferred.

Cost 130,000gns as a yearling; showed a great attitude at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm) where he rallied tenaciously to beat Sayedaty Sadaty and Quatre Bras in a tight finish; open to progress and his gameness will be an asset in the rematch.
