Form & Verdict

Unexposed colt whose form figures read 113; scored twice on AW (1m/1m2f) then kept on for third in York handicap (1m, good) switched to turf, shaping as if this step back up in distance will prove ideal; still open to further progress and warrants respect.

Record is 3-5; came up short in Newmarket Group 3 on last appearance (gelded since) but progressive otherwise and was impressive in a handicap there (1m1f, good to firm) the time before; represents a stable in great form and likely still has more to offer; remains of interest.

J: Finley Marsh

Unexposed colt with impressive form-figures; well suited by stepping up to 1m1f when winning C&D handicap two weeks ago by a wide margin, travelling strongly and surging clear; rain-softened ground would be an unknown (raced only on good/good to firm) but he's improving fast and well worth his place in this higher grade.

Can front-run; registered two wins and a second over 1m on good or good to firm last May-August, his highlights on turf last year; reappeared with AW win at Wolverhampton in February and although trying to overcome a wide draw in warm race there in March did not work out, that shouldn't attract much criticism; needs a career best but not dismissed.

Good second at Ripon on penultimate start but that is flanked by two modest efforts, so it's hard to predict whether he'll be in top form; moreover, he's well exposed and weighted to the hilt.

Won as 2yo at this track; that's his only win (ten races) and he ran as if something was amiss here last September, but his front-running sixth of 17 here (1m, good) 18 days ago was a huge step back in the right direction, still bang there in a blanket finish; he may have come on since that run.
