Form & Verdict

Showed a bit of promise at both Redcar (7f, good) and Newcastle (6f, Tapeta), before being unable to get competitive over the latter C&D latest; likely slower pace over this longer trip may help and he's not ruled out.

Improved form upped to 1m on handicap debut when scoring at Kempton last month; held at odds-on behind the front-running Tasmanian Legend at Newcastle last time but that was in a tactical race and he still has potential; respected with cheekpieces added.

0-6; placed on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta) last November; held since in both a handicap (7f, Polytrack) and back in novice company (1m2f, Polytrack); drops 3lb and back in trip; player if that helps but has that to prove.

His two best RPRs have come at around 1m and he was tapped for speed in a 7f nursery at Lingfield last week; helps sets the standard in this field but whether he wants this far remains to be seen.

Form & Verdict

Has made some improvement with each start (7f-1m), the last two on Tapeta; enters handicaps on a mark that looks a little stiff but goes back up in trip and if he can improve again he's a player.

Trainer 0-20 with 2yos this season but this gelding offered more than on debut (turf) over C&D a month ago; that wasn't much of a race but neither is this and he holds claims.

Showed little in two turf sprints last summer, when with Joseph O'Brien; gelded after and produced a more promising effort when last seen at Dundalk (7f, Polytrack; first-time tongue-tie and blinkers); has since changed hands and has his first run for this trainer; check for market confidence.

Appeared to improve on final start in Irish maidens; creditable fourth in 1m handicap here for new yard, leaving the impression this return to 7f will suit; still unexposed and one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Debut winner for Richard Hannon last August but quickly went backwards and there's been no sign of arresting the slump in two starts for this trainer; headgear now called for and that needs to have a significant effect.

Definite signs of ability in both 7f starts, at Newcastle and Kempton, but looks ready for a step up in trip in keeping with his pedigree and handicaps over further will open new doors.
