Given a great tactical ride to open his account (1m6f). Failed to follow up last week when throwing the race away inside the final furlong. Drops in trip with different headgear and trainer has a career 16-56 record here with this age group.
Made all to win a poor race at Kempton and he has had his limitations fully exposed since. Yet to make the frame on turf and hard to fancy.
Won a three-runner race at Salisbury on heavy ground (1m6f) and has since gone well over C&D in a tactical affair won by the improving Timoshenko. Third in an amateurs race since and has a leading chance for a yard in form.
Daughter of Camelot who fetched €80,000 as a yearling and is a half-sister to five winners. Showed a bit more promise last time over 2m and bred to be better suited to this shorter trip. Yard having a stellar year and worth checking in the market.
