Back-to-back wins in four-runner races on the AW in January, but was blocked when challenging the winner in his bid for a hat-trick in a conditions race at Kempton. Each of those races was over 1m, but this trip may suit as he steps up in class.
Declaration Of War colt who fetched 290,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to the very useful Toormore and Estidhkaar. Not unduly pressed to win a 1m2f Nottingham maiden on debut, but take a steep rise in class.
Well-bred colt who narrowly won a C&D handicap on his reappearance before finishing second to a stable companion in a Listed contest last time. Sets the standard, but stable not quite in the same form as earlier in the season.
