Novice stakes winner over 6f on soft ground here in June 2016. Had just two subsequent outings and interesting to see if he can build on a promising handicap debut at Newmarket (7f, good-to-firm) last month.
Sole success came in a Doncaster (7f, good-to-soft) maiden last October. Fair efforts in handicaps over 1m the last twice and interesting down in trip.
Placed four times from eight starts including when beaten a neck into third in a four runner event at Windsor (1m, good-to-firm) last month. Well held on debut for this yard subsequently.
Returned to form with a 2L fourth over C&D on good-to-firm ground last time out. Races off a 1lb lower mark and a repeat of that would see him involved in the finish.
Improving with racing this term and was a winner over C&D on good-to-firm ground a week ago. One for the shortlist off a 4lb higher mark.
Impressive 5L winner over C&D on good-to-firm going in June. Beat just one rival home back here subsequently and interesting to see how she fares.
Placed over this trip on good-to-firm going the last twice. Beaten 2L at Chepstow last time out and races off the same mark on this occasion.
Beaten 4L when finishing third over 5f at Bath (firm) in May. Held in two subsequent starts and making his debut for a new yard.
