Built upon the promise of his debut fourth over C&D (good) when winning readily at Pontefract (6f, good to soft) last month; today's opponents are considerably tougher but this 450,000gns yearling buy could have plenty more left in the tank and he's not discounted.

All runs at sprint trips, winning a 5f fillies' maiden at Carlisle on debut and showing improved form in two 6f events at Pontefract last autumn; could well be more to come this year and there is encouragement for 7f on pedigree.

Pulled hard a few times last year and the old habit was back at Yarmouth latest; somewhat risky but this mark is within range if more amenable and maybe the drop from 7f in a bigger field will do the trick.

Caught the eye on debut at Nottingham (6f, good to soft) when very green and duly improved to win with something to spare at Ripon (6f, good); carries a penalty against some interesting rivals but has strong claims.
