17:15 Lingfield Wed 12 July 2017
Stepped up on his Bath (firm) debut when finishing 1L third over 5f at Windsor (good-to-firm), before second of six, beaten 1½L on good ground here on the first of the month.
Failed to live up to market expectations on his debut run but put that all behind him when winning over 6f at Brighton, before fourth of six, beaten 5¼L, when evens favourite at Ayr, last month.
Yet to get his head in front on any of his six starts to date, including a 10½L defeat in the Windsor Castle, before second of five in a Bath maiden auction, when sent off the 4/6f.
Getting better with each run finishing third of 12, beaten just 1L, a month ago here on good ground over 5f.
All three career starts have come at Salisbury, including sixth of nine last day in novice auction stakes over 6f on good to firm ground. Best watched.
Finished fourth on first two starts, including at Chepstow (good-to-soft) over 5f in May, before disappointing fifth of six, beaten 8L in Bath novice stakes over 5f.
Her last run at Lingfield was easily her best to date (5f, good to firm), and she has looked generally progressive so far, having taken a while to learn how to race efficiently, but disappointed on last start at Brighton.
