Well-bred gelding who cost 260,000euros as a 2yo; safely held when seventh of nine on debut at Ascot (7f, good) in September 2022 and returns from 409-day absence here but has very obvious scope for improvement.

Two runs for Andrew Balding, down the field in an Ascot novice as a 2yo and winning cosily in a 7f novice at Leicester last October (soft; form modest); sold for 22,000gns shortly afterwards and gelded; unexposed but different conditions to deal with and likely best watched on stable debut; tongue tie added.

Creditable third of 15 over C&D (soft) on debut in August and probably ran to similar level when third of 12 on Polytrack later that month; looks the one to beat.

Has shown promise in three 7f runs on turf (soft) and the AW, and looks the type with scope to progress further now handicapping; this looks a baptism of fire on first run at this level, though.

Speedy pedigree but kicked off over 7f at Leicester (soft) and only just lost out on second place despite running green; that form could be working out better but he's entitled to be in the mix.

Respectable fifth of nine in good Kempton novice (6f, AW) on last month's stable debut; needs to build on that performance here but it will be interesting to see whether the switch to slow turf suits.

A maiden after seven starts but went close over C&D in December and returned from three-month break with quite encouraging run here ten days ago; a possible if this race is run to suit his patient tactics.

Eyecatching stable debut over 5f at Wolverhampton four weeks ago and he justified short-priced favouritism at Lingfield last week (handicap debut; made all over 7f); unpenalised today and he's still open to further progress; strong claims.

Form & Verdict

Bettered low-key debut when respectable fourth of sixth at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) in August 2022; gelded and had wind surgery during subsequent 431-day absence; encounters very different ground here and is not a easy horse to weigh up at present but market support will make him of interest.
