Has improved with each of his three runs and he won at Pontefract last time on his first crack at 1m (good to soft; unraced on softer); could continue to progress and he's respected on his nursery debut.

Encouraging fifth on debut at Haydock (7f, good) last month and again kept on well when third at Epsom (7f, good) last time; the step up to 1m promises to suit and he's a leading contender.

Form & Verdict

Defied evident inexperience to win on debut at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) in August and similar form when third under a penalty at Ayr (1m, good to soft), when again running green; he brings potential to this nursery debut and could be in the mix.

Made all in Brighton maiden (7f, good) last month on third start and did likewise in Ripon nursery (1m, good) next time; goes back into a handicap after going off hard from a wide draw in a sales race at York a fortnight ago (7f, first run on soft) but he's not easy to fancy after that heavy defeat.

Placed on first two starts (6f/7f, good to soft) before winning a maiden at Brighton (7f, good) and he followed up in a nursery at Ripon (1m, good); others have more substance to their form but he's made all with plenty in hand the last twice and could have more left in the tank; a possible.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't kicked on following his fairly promising debut fourth at Newbury (7f, good) in July but he's been gelded since last time, which could help unlock some of the potential in his pedigree; interesting on nursery debut.

Form & Verdict

Has improved with each of his four runs and was a close third on his nursery debut at York a fortnight ago (1m, soft; just behind Classy Boy), when coming from a difficult position at the back of the pack; there can be optimism he'll continue to progress and he's on the shortlist.

Verdict

The attractively bred ALLEGORICAL has been gelded since his last run, which could unlock some improvement on this nursery debut, and he may be the answer. Bust A Move was an eyecatching third at York recently and is feared most ahead of Classy Boy, who was second in that race on the Knavesmire, and Pontefract winner Magico.[Ben Hutton]
