Showed promise in conditions races in France either side of a creditable third of nine in a 1m Goodwood maiden; races freely and the return to 7f with the addition of a hood could help; can play a big part.

Absent since narrow win at Chelmsford (7f; AW debut) in November when settling better in first-time hood; removal of the headgear looks a negative, especially returned to 1m; difficult task on bare figures.

Just a respectable start at Newmarket but he came on plenty for the run when, despite getting a hefty knock early, he produced a bright spurt to win going away over 6f at Kempton 29 days ago; the extra furlong should be a formality on pedigree and the one to beat.

Off the mark at the second attempt when landing a 6f novice here in October; runner-up in his next four starts (6f/7f) and he wasn't beaten far when fifth at Newcastle last month; needs to find a bit extra but he still has potential and is respected back up in trip.

Comes here on the up and today's conditions won't faze him; he'll need to better his latest Wolverhampton second now taking on some unexposed opposition but he's unlikely to be far away.

Ordinary form when placed in two Chelmsford novices (7f, Polytrack) last autumn; could improve now making his handicap debut after 165 days off, though his pedigree suggests a drop in trip may suit.

Finished much closer on his second visit to Chelmsford when staying on from off the pace to be about 5l off the principals; however, others have achieved superior figures and he needs this to get a handicap mark.
