Thrice-raced Sixties Icon colt, may do better this year for good yard who have made a fine start to the season. Bit keen on reappearance at Redcar (1m, good to firm) last month and faded as if needing run.
The winner of a 7f AW nursery at Wolverhampton last year with Richard Hughes, racing consistently this spring without necessarily looking like a winner in waiting but this does look a weak contest.
Showed little as a two-year-old but shaped with a little more promise in first two runs this year at Windsor and Chepstow before failing to see out 1m2f at Goodwood. Back to this trip suits.
Much better effort over 7f (good) here last week on turf bow, finishing narrow second and doing best work late on. Extra furlong suits and big contender from the same mark.
Al Kazeem half-sister to useful 1½m winner Ode To Psyche from family of brilliant Kingmambo. Poor in all three starts, need major step forward now tackling a handicap.
Home-bred son of Swiss Spirit and a half-brother to multiple winner Showdaisy. Not shown enough in four starts, including handicap bow at Beverley (1m4f, good to firm) last month when beaten 14L.
Big prices and wide-margin defeats in three novice outings, latest when making turf bow at Doncaster (1m, good to firm) this month. In trouble a fair way from home. Watching brief safest unless money arrives.
Gelded Son of Cityscape and a half-brother to a number of winners over shorter trips. No impact in trio of novice/maiden contests so far. Has plenty to work on switched to handicaps.
