Highly tried as a juvenile (placed in a Group 3) when with Richard Fahey; taking time to find herself for this yard in handicaps although her mark is a reduced one. Needs to settle better to be seen to full effect having taken a strong hold at York.
Recorded a comfortable success when dropped to this trip on the AW in March but he can be a little hard to catch right and so it's proved in three subsequent runs. Without his usual blinkers last time (and this); mark reduced once more.
Won his first two starts for his former yard on the AW and has always looked better on that surface despite a couple of recent good efforts on turf. Ground may well be a little too quick for him here (debut for new connections); others preferred.
Back from a long absence with cheekpieces going on for the first-time on his return to action although he remains 2lb above his last winning mark. Can only be watched after such a break and he is in the veteran stage now.
Tumbled down the weights in the past 18 months since leaving Marco Botti for his current yard but did look to have turned the corner last time running his best race for a while. Can be slow away which hampers his chance; still work to do in this.
