Progressed well in novice/maidens as he went up in trip, going 5f, 6f then 7f; the ground was heavy when coming up short on handicap debut at Haydock (7f; fav) and has been gelded during the winter; probably on a good mark.

He has improved with each of his three starts, most recently finishing a front-running second of 12 at Chester a fortnight ago (7f, good to soft); unexposed at the trip and one to consider now handicapping.

Well-bred 200,000euros breeze-up buy who was a good third on debut at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) in August; well beaten at Ascot (7f, good to firm) since but he may be able to recapture his initial promise now reverting to Polytrack and it will be no surprise if he bounces back with a big run.

Won a novice (6f, good) on the other course here in May and he went close on his nursery debut at Windsor (6f, good; RPR 84) last month; looks interesting on that form but he has a mixed record in his six starts so far and was disappointing at Goodwood (6f, good to soft) last time; comes with risks attached at this new trip.

His Newmarket win in June is very much a standout and that was his only run on ground softer than good (good to soft); these conditions might be the key to him but still hard to trust after his last two modest efforts.
