Bang there in all three runs, the two last year over 6f for Alice Haynes (in same colours); went down narrowly on his return at Doncaster (7f, soft) and the winner was upsides Kikkuli on his sole start last season; with an edge in experience over all of today's rivals he should be a major player.

Slowly away and beaten nearly 11l by a stablemate when fourth of 12 at 11-2 on recent debut over C&D (soft); however, this 1,000,000gns yearling may be a lot sharper for that run and is not ruled out.
