Lightly raced 4yo who kept on strongly to win over C&D last month and stayed on for fourth here when upped to this grade 16 days ago; drawn on the inside today and probably still has potential; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Built upon very promising debut when quickening clear to win easily over C&D this month; subsequent 10lb hike up the weights enforces today's rise in grade but he probably still has a lot more to offer; commands respect.

Hails from a decent sprinting family and looked one to follow when making all over 6f here on debut; slightly unlucky not to follow up from a wide draw off 7lb higher and one to consider despite this step up in trip and the promotion to Class 3 company.
