Yet to win but has finished second four times; progressing for stepping up in distance, he ran his best race when second at York (1m4f, good) last month; has been slowly away in his last two races but his turn will surely come.

Form & Verdict

Unfortunate not to open his account when headed in the final stride on handicap debut at Wolverhampton AW (1m4f) in April; not so good on return to turf at York (1m4f, good) last month; withdrawn on account of the ground (good to firm) since; still needs to prove his effectiveness on turf.

Improved for the step up in distance when winning on his handicap debut at Ascot (1m2f, good) last month; he should continue to improve and goes up another 2f; major chance.

8st 11lb

J: Benoit De La Sayette

T: Kevin Philippart De Foy

Held in two starts over 1m on turf last September, but showed improvement when third of 12 on his Kempton return (1m, AW) in March, staying on in the manner of one who would relish stepping up in trip (backed up by pedigree); interesting on handicap debut.

Kept on well upped in trip on his first run since September when second at Leicester (1m2f, good to soft) last month; unexposed, he makes his handicap debut over 2f further and is one to be interested in.

9st 7lb

J: Richard Kingscote

Looked in need of the experience when seventh of 13 at Newbury on debut five weeks ago (7f, good to soft); that race is a particularly strong formline though and he shouldn't be underestimated with the run behind him.

Recorded a four-timer on the AW for Barry Brennan between January and March; out of his depth in a Group 3 at Sandown (1m2f, good to soft) on only his second start on turf, he may have further improvement in him for his new trainer.

Consistent maiden who was second for the fifth time in a row at Chester (10.5f, good) on penultimate start; fared less well on handicap debut when fourth of five back there (10.5f, good to soft) since and steps up in distance here.

Has improved since stepping up in distance in handicaps this year; he was beaten half a length by Flickering Halo at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm) last month on his seasonal debut; hung badly right and headed inside the final furlong at Doncaster (1m4f, good to soft) last time; should go well.

Showed improved form to win at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm) last month; well held in a stronger race at York (10.5f, good to soft) last time; looks a stayer and may have further improvement in him stepping back up in distance.

Impressed on debut at Newcastle (7f, AW) last September then mid-division in York sales race (7f, soft); went very close behind Bravo Zulu, with whom he's now 1lb better off, in Southwell novice (7f, AW) last month; this attractively bred gelding remains unexposed and is open to improvement.

Out of a 6f Group 3 winner and created good impression when drawing 5l clear to score on debut at Newcastle (7f) in September; found valuable sales race too hot the following month but was not disgraced and needs to be taken very seriously in these much calmer waters.
