Form & Verdict

Disappointing in 6f Group 1 races on final two starts last season (very soft/good to firm) and he's unproven on slow ground; however, the break may have helped and he looked one to follow when winning a Group 2 by 2l at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last July; interesting contender on his comeback.

Very slow surface was likely to blame for his Morny effort (well held); progressive on good/firmer otherwise, notably beating Lake Forest in the July Stakes on the other course here (6f); could well resume his improvement, granted suitable ground; remains of major interest.

Can start slowly and he hung badly right at Newmarket last October, while he was disappointing on his reappearance at Lingfield (AW) in March when having his first crack at 6f; however, he was placed in two Group races last autumn (5f, soft) and may well be capable of better if he can become more straightforward; won on good ground on debut; not discounted.

It was not a strong novice event that he won on his Ffos Las debut last June (5f, good) but he went on to finish placed in two Group races on slow ground in the autumn; looked a difficult ride at Newmarket on the latter occasion, hanging sharply to his right in the closing stages, but he's clearly blessed with plenty of ability and 6f should suit; not fully exposed but his wide draw isn't ideal given his errant ways when last seen.

Debut success came in ordinary race at Ffos Las (good); possibly flattered by his 33-1 third in the Flying Childers (5f, soft) subsequently, considering how the race panned out behind the trailblazing winner, but is still unexposed after just two runs.
