Has raced exclusively on Jersey since the summer of 2021 (1-11); out of the frame in four starts on the AW when trained in France and likely he will need to improve to win this on stable debut.

All three wins over 1m4f on Tapeta, the latest here in September of last year; now 3lb lower than for that success and has run well over this far, but she needs to put a poor effort on last month's Newcastle reappearance (1m4f, Tapeta; blew the start) well behind her.
