Form & Verdict

Seeking a hat-trick, having posted tidy wins over 5f at Wolverhampton and this course since returned to AW; now 3-7 in this sphere and could well improve further; warrants respect, for all that he's upped in grade off career-high mark.

C&D winner as a 2yo; quiet last summer but he's making up for it this winter, completing his four-timer when played late at Wolverhampton 13 days ago; this is stronger and he'll need another personal best to make it five on the bounce.

Won over C&D in October when back on AW and has scored at Chelmsford (5f) the next twice; he's climbing the weights and had just a neck to spare last time, but he did it cosily and is clearly progressive; strong claims.

Won a Navan maiden (5.7f) for Aidan O'Brien in August; sold for 15,000gns in October but after gelding/wind operations, he made an encouraging start for this yard at Chelmsford (5f, AW) 15 days ago; was behind Dynamic Force in that race but he didn't get the best of runs and is still unexposed after only five starts; dangerous.

Good second off 3lb lower in similar event at Lingfield (5f) last time, taking his AW form figures to 1432; retains low mileage and may well be capable of further progress this winter; major contender.
