€160,000 Kodiac colt won on debut at Maisons Laffitte over 6f but could never get involved in subsequent Group Three again in France. Not easy to gauge his form but tough to give weight to promising rivals.
Much improved in second start when taking a 6f Newmarket maiden before appearing to be in need of a step up in trip when outpaced next in France. Should fare better for 7f but 3lb penalty makes this a tough task nevertheless.
Middle distance bred colt got off the mark despite hanging left at Lingfield in penultimate start winning by 10L. Disappointing next when third in Newbury Group Three although winner there probably high class. Big chance at this level.
Footstepsinthesand half-brother to several winners, including useful 1m1f winner Fastnet Mist was a most pleasing second of 10 on debut here over C&D when headed in the last stride. Trainer's two-year-olds improve for debut so big player here.
