Finished last on his first two starts although he did show some promise in both with the promise of better to come. Duly found that improvement at Windsor last time winning with a bit in hand with further progress likely; best at 5f.
Confirmed the promise he showed on his debut at Ascot when taking a 6f novice at Goodwood on his second start (form well advertised). Stepped up to Listed class at Royal Ascot when a well found 8/1 chance (below-par); now hooded for an easier task.
Made very little impression on his debut over 5f at Windsor before showing a little more second time out upped to 6f at Goodwood. Now returned to 5f and needs this run for a mark in handicaps where he will be more at home.
Slow burner who has progressed gradually by the run turning in his best performance so far last time to be beaten just under 2L by Good Luck Fox. Gets a 7lb pull here which will make that contest closer but more of a nursery type.
Bred to be a speedy and a precocious type she turned in what was a modest first effort at Windsor over 5f finishing last of eight (beaten around 7L). May do a little better here but hard to see her being good enough to win something like this.
Newcomer from a yard who are 4-33 with their two-year-olds this season (2-17 with debutantes) with this one a half-sister to two winners. Dam was a winner over sprint trips and worth more than a glance if there is market support.
