Form & Verdict

Didn't live up to market billing in two runs for George Boughey; stiff task in a Newmarket sales race on his stable debut last month, but he showed what he was capable of when digging deep to win a 6f novice at Brighton five weeks ago (soft ground); likely he'll need the extra furlong to prompt further improvement.

Ended his 2yo campaign with a hat-trick of wins (6f-1m, turf/AW); creditable fifth (3l behind Orne) upped to Listed grade at Lingfield on reappearance, shaping as if this step back up in trip will suit; could go well.

Failed to live up to market billing in two runs for George Boughey this summer but Jane Chapple-Hyam has found the key to him in recent months, digging deep to win a 6f novice at Brighton before readily seeing off the reopposing Gaiden in 7f Wolverhampton nursery; up in trip again now; like Alfred, he hasn't been missed by the handicapper but looks capable of even better.

Sent off favourite to beat subsequent Lowther winner Relief Rally on her Windsor debut in April (5f, soft) and ran well to finish a 2l second; close third in Listed company at York's Dante meeting in May but the wheels came off afterwards, beaten 10l+ in three runs since; interesting that Richard Hannon bought her back for 32,000gns last month and a revival wouldn't be a complete shock now down in class and up in trip.

Big step forward at the third attempt when easily seeing off 12 rivals in a 6f novice at Pontefract in September (good to soft); that form has taken some knocks since and he himself was only fifth at Windsor last month; encouragement for 7f on pedigree (his brother Miami Thunder is a 1m AW winner) but this mark doesn't look a gift.

Off the mark at the fifth attempt when readily accounting for seven rivals at Chester in July (5f, soft); no significant impact in two strong nurseries in August, after which he was gelded; stepping up to 7f needs to spark something extra.

Brighton maiden winner in June (6f, good to firm); beaten eight times since but placed in nurseries on his last three starts and should run his race; 3lb rise since last time not ideal though and the change of headgear needs to prompt a career best.
