Appears to be a better horse on the AW with her sole win coming on a synthetic surface. Well below form on turf over 6f since that win and hopes pinned on a return to 7f dropped slightly in grade.
Gelded prior to his nursery debut he showed that he had ability earlier in the year in novice events at this venue. Looks open to some progress although his mark isn't one that screams out that he's well handicapped.
On the evidence of his form so far he's going to need further than this 7f to be seen to best advantage. Below-par the last twice over this trip with the track not suiting on the first occasion and the ground being too soft last time.
Given an increased trip to work with he showed much better form last time when 5th over C&D after a break. Now goes handicapping for the first time having shown that he has some potential off a workable mark.
Yet to beat a rival home and although allowances can be made that he's inexperienced he does look limited and makes little appeal even though he now goes handicapping.
