Off the mark in a small-field 5f AW maiden in March; beaten favourite at Chester last month (5f, good) when looking as though a return to 6f could help; not fully exposed.

Runner-up in three of his four starts, most recently when turned over at short odds at Newcastle (5f) ten days ago after a five-month break; may be sharper with that behind him and he's one to take seriously.

Disappointed when favourite for a newcomers' maiden at Newbury (7f, good to soft) in April and she still looked green when winning a 6f maiden (good) at Salisbury 13 days ago; open to plenty of improvement and this 160,000 Breeze Up purchase could have been let into handicaps lightly.

Left his debut form behind when showing a good attitude to land a Kempton maiden (6f, Polytrack) in January; only fifth of six on his handicap debut there last month but he looked dangerous before his effort flattened out and he's still unexposed; hard to rule out with cheekpieces added.
