5 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Winless since taking this prize a year ago but he wasn't discredited when a never-nearer fifth of 12 in 1m5f Chelmsford handicap five days ago; it would come as no surprise to see him go well with cheekpieces fitted.

9st 0lb

J: Oisin Murphy

T: Andrew Balding

Returned from a year off to win easily in 1m4f novice events at Lingfield and Wolverhampton last spring; too free when well-held sixth in 1m4f Newbury Group 3 last May but the fact he went off at only 7-1 in what was a strong race of its type underlines the good impression he made in those AW wins; evidently capable when fresh, so a further 322-day absence isn't that big a concern and his yard is in form; tongue tied first time; no surprise were a mark of 93 to underestimate his ability.
