Has made a good start to his career, going close on debut and winning at Lingfield (7f, AW) last month. Drops in trip here with a penalty to shoulder, but looks to have enough speed to have a big say again.
Ran well in a similar race at Kempton (6f) in October and improved on that with a win at Chelmsford (6f) in November. Will need to take another step forward to defy a penalty but no reason why he can't give another good account.
Scored at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) on debut in January and bettered that with a creditable effort in a conditions event (5f) back there a month later. That form looks very solid and it would be no surprise to see him go close to defying a penalty.
Posted a couple of reasonable efforts in novices' events at Kempton (6f) and Chelmsford (7f) in November and December. Will need significant improvement on that to win this and looks more of a handicap prospect.
Sixth foal. Full-brother to 6f AW winner Mazzini, half-brother to three other winners, two of them at this trip. Dam also a 6f winning full-sister to July Cup winner Frizzante. Promising pedigree and good debut looks possible.
Went close on debut in a Kempton novices' race (6f) in November and was unfortunate when losing his pilot coming out of the stalls last time at Lingfield when sent off at 7-2. Should be capable of a good showing.
Well held in both starts here over 7f and then C&D last year. Will have a handicap mark to work with after this run and that is when he will become of greater interest.
