Form & Verdict

Consistent opening season ended with a first win when dead-heating over C&D in July after setting the pace; disappointing this season with two heavy defeats but there was much more sparkle when he won a post-Christmas trial under Hugh Bowman.

Has settled well in three trials at Conghua (twice on turf) and Sha Tin (once of dirt) and has made up good ground in the latest two of them (5f); there's speed in his family and another newcomer with hopes, although he sibling New Asia Advance was unplaced in all eight starts in Hong Kong.

Tardiness from the starting gate compromised his first three trials but he got away nicely on latest two attempts; showed more in both those workouts but not enough to be expecting a winning start; he's likely to want further.

First foal of 7f and 1m winning mare; by a son of Frankel; pedigree is all about stamina but progressive displays in three trials (4f/6f) on the turf at Conghua revealed plenty of pace; latest trial was a dismissive showing three weeks ago; rates a contender but market will be interesting.

Both starts have shown he has ability in twice claiming fourth place, albeit over 5f which would not have played to his strengths; likely to be close to the pace and with a first drop in his handicap mark, he should again be in contention for a share of the prize-money.

Form & Verdict

First-time blinkers failed to ignite him last time (7f) but the headgear is retained as he drops back to trip over which he had four successive nearest-at-finish performances at Happy Valley; another drop in the handicap puts him on a very competitive mark; leading player if shining on a track where he has been unplaced on all three visits.

Pedigree reads well enough but four trials from October to December paint a different picture; he has shown very little so far and probably needs time and more distance before he is likely to shine.

Both wins have come over this trip but on the dirt track here; has lost his way since pleasing return in a 5f event on turf which has put him just 1lb above his last winning handicap mark; that said, it's asking plenty to forgive his last two efforts.
