Showed plenty of ability in three starts last year, having no problem in justifying odds of 1-4 in a Bath maiden (5.7f, good to firm) in September; failed to beat a rival on his Newmarket return (6f, good) last month, though, finishing behind a couple of these; enough to prove after that.

Thrice-raced colt who justified favouritism at Bath (5.7f, good to firm) in September on last appearance and looks the type to improve further; penultimate effort received a boost here on Tuesday; very appealing.
