Started 7/4f and well beaten in a Ripon seller on his penultimate start (1m2f good), so that's rather off-putting; furthermore, the vast majority of his career wins have come over a longer trip (1m2f).
Still a maiden after eight starts and hasn't seen any racecourse action for seven months. Consistent in the main as a juvenile, regularly placed over 6f to 7f, but more to prove over this trip; trainer also saddles Rita's Man.
His sole career success came over Newcastle's demanding 7f trip (Tapeta) in March, so there's every likelihood he'll stay 1m here; runner up on his sole visit to this track as a juvenile in August 2017 (7f).
Down the field in all three starts so far (7f-1m3.5f), but whilst this is a more suitable option (handicap debut) he needs to show much more in order to strike.
Tackled a variety of trips without success (0 from 6), so it's back to the drawing board in first time blinkers over a reduced trip (1m). Keen, prominent racer in a modest race so could take a step forward.
Last Year's Winner
Knight In Armour (2/1), Rita's Man (11/4), Ventura Gold (3/1), Thunderhooves (13/2), Kirbec (7/1)
