Finally gained success at Windsor in penultimate start after four seconds (first past the post in one) before an excellent run to be second in £300,000 sales race at Doncaster. Mark here looks very lenient and will take some beating.
Kempton AW winner (5f) in second start who ran well next at Chester but has struggled a little since with switch to pattern company beyond him. Easier contest this time but has enough weight and this a new trip.
Won one of his nine starts, that when tackling this trip for first time at Epsom in July. Handicap continued to rise after that with three placed efforts before latest fourth at Doncaster. Handicapper not been kind to him.
Wolverhampton AW winner over this trip in third race and narrowly went down to an odds-on Mark Johnston juvenile next under a penalty at Musselburgh. Steps into handicaps for first time but clearly improving for an in-form team.
Not much encouragement in first three starts but switched to handicapping latest he bolted up at 11/1 at Epsom (7f). Handicapper raises him 10lb for that so much tougher now but latest win too impressive to ignore.
Off the mark at the sixth time of asking latest at Salisbury (7f), winning by 1L. Turned around quickly under a 6lb penalty here but suspect she will find this a taller order.
