By Mastercraftsman out of a winning daughter of top-class racemare Bint Pasha, but quite cheaply bought given his pedigree, and tailed off on Kempton debut. Now tried in blinkers.
Probably better on AW than turf, and ran poorly here last time, but previous fifth of 16 at York in May reads well in the context of this race, and a major player based on official ratings.
Has finished last on three of four starts to date, and seemingly limited, so gelding and fitting of blinkers will need to have a galvanising effect.
Won a novice at Catterick (6f, soft) last season, and while he's not progressed, he did return to form when second in a selling handicap at Ripon last time with blinkers utilised, and a repeat would give him every chance in a weak race.
Has shown nothing at all in varied company, and can't be fancied. Wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Has won twice at Chelmsford this year, and best turf effort when second at Brighton in April. Below form since, but given a break, and should be competitive in a race of this nature.
