185,000euros yearling; by Wootton Bassett out of useful 5f/6f winner; 20-1 for 17-runner maiden at Newbury (1m, good to soft) four weeks ago but came strongly from mid-division to beat all except subsequent Dante winner Economics; that was respected form and he looks highly promising.

Form & Verdict

Brother to 7f-1m2f winner Key To Victory (RPR 109) and half-brother to Blair House (1m1f UAE Group 1 winner) among the dam's winners; 4-1, made most to win 11-runner Wood Ditton newcomers race at Newmarket (1m, good) four weeks ago, which was a cracking start to his career but he hung on by a nose from Lead Artist who is now 6lb better off.

Eighth foal; brother to 7f-1m2f winner Key To Victory (including Listed), closely related to two winners, half-brother to three winners notably Blair House (1m1f UAE Group 1 winner for yard); with a leading stable and this Teofilo gelding could have a big say.

Has useful pedigree; 16-1 for maiden at Newcastle (7f, AW) in January when she made a promising debut to run on into third of nine; this race is a tough assignment, though.
