Confined to just two runs (on good) for Godolphin in 2022 and the form of his 1m2f maiden win at Newmarket turned out to be surprisingly weak; however, he has joined an up-and-coming yard for his jumps career following a 16,000gns sale this September.

Trained by Charlie Appleby when off the mark on his second start at Newmarket (1m2f, good; first-time cheepieces) in October 2022; not seen again until following up in a 1m4f Southwell novice (no cheekpieces) last month for new trainer James Owen; hard to argue an opening mark of 89 on the back of that looks generous but he did it readily and is very much an unknown quantity; the cheekpieces also return now.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly beaten by a talented horse in France (1m7f, very soft) and should improve on his last-of-three run at Doncaster (beaten under 4l) where his jumping lacked fluency and he looked green under pressure; now tongue tied; every chance.

Flat win as 2yo in Ireland and placed in 1m2f handicap for Alan King this summer, showing fair form; no match for the front two on hurdling debut at Wincanton (soft) but that run hinted at a future in this discipline.

Verdict

This has the look of a decidedly weak maiden and it’s probably at the mercy of KARAKTERE D’ENFER. His French effort makes for good reading and he wasn’t beaten far at Doncaster despite fiddling a few of his hurdles. He should improve yet might not have to in this company. Whispering Royal is the danger, for all that his recent placing was remote. Ex-Godolphin inmate Cannon Rock is the dark horse.[Alistair Jones]
