Promising debut at Newmarket over this trip and since won Chelmsford AW novice event. May not be granted his way as easily in this contest.
Winner here over 5f in April on second start in heavy going, was put in his place in stronger Newbury contest next time but good second at Chepstow on Friday evening gives him sound claims in this if turning up again quickly.
A £125,000 purchase at the breeze-ups, he won six-runner event at Bath (5f, good) 16 days ago, digging deep and showing a pleasing attitude in doing so. There should be more to come from him.
Ran well to finish fourth over this trip at Leicester (good) on debut last month and should progress. Engaged 2.10 Chester Saturday.
A 60,000 gns yearling, Kodiac colt. Dam 7f/7½f winner out of two-year-old 6f winner Mall Queen. Represents powerful firm on debut and well worth noting.
Heeraat colt, dam maiden half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Flat Spin. Sold for tidy profit as a yearling and represents top yard (have been quiet of late).
Alhebayeb colt cost €50,000 as a yearling and is a brother to winner up to 1m4f Cardinal Palace and 1m1½f winner Hot Sauce, both decent. Third Richard Hannon runner in this field.
By Kodiac and first foal of a Listed winner. Speed in pedigree, though only finished eighth of 11 in minor event at Kempton (6f, AW) on debut 11 days ago. Yard just 1-29 lately.
