Ex-German; second over 1m on juvenile debut (good); placed on several occasions at up to 1m4f on a variety of tracks in France last season; faded late on after making the running when fourth on British Flat debut at Kempton in March (1m4f, standard/slow); interesting down in trip on handicap debut.

Races mainly on the AW (four wins) but has run well on turf, notably when clear second off 7lb lower at Yarmouth last May (1m2f, good to firm); has since won twice over this trip on the AW, latest with blinkers; cheekpieces now tried; could go well.

T: Alice Haynes

Record over C&D reads 31316212; still 7lb higher than when bolting up here in January, but he has run well to be placed in all three outings since, the last two over 1m; should appreciate stepping back up to this trip and high on list.

J: Tom Eaves

T: Tim Easterby

Failed to win last year but several efforts of note; also ran well at Pontefract on last month's reappearance (1m, soft) and met some trouble when below par at Thirsk last week; stepping back up in trip won't hurt but others appeal more for win purposes.

Lightly raced 4yo; won a Newcastle novice in May 2023 (1m, second now rated 93, third rated 49); mixed form since, last time finishing tailed off in a moderately-run 1m3f handicap at Southwell when pulling too hard; hard to predict on first run on turf.

Newcastle novice winner (1m, Tapeta) in February last year but out of the frame in all three starts since returning in December, albeit he would have finished closer with a clear run when fifth of ten over C&D on his penultimate start; considered from 2lb lower.
