Winner on his debut on the AW over 1m4f he looked a decent prospect but he's not really backed that win up on two runs on turf since. Tongue-tie now added to the cheekpieces worn the last twice on his first start in handicaps.
Off the mark in handicaps on her second start in that sphere over 1m4f off a mark of 80 she did run a little freely and show a high head carriage. That trait manifested itself last time when she disappointed and she backed out of things quickly.
Both his best runs in handicaps have come on heavy ground getting off the mark on his second handicap start (1m6f). His run last time at Nottingham almost matched the form of his Wetherby win but he'll surely be suited by further off this mark.
There looks to be some further improvement to come after a few earlier runs had shown promise. His last run in particular showing what he can do travelling well and only losing out to one who got first run; may do better, one to be interested in.
Shaped nicely on a couple of occasions as a juvenile over shorter trips than this but showed promise. Just had the one run this year (now gelded) and still not looking the finished article (runner-up) and now steps up 4f on handicap debut.
