- Betway Casino Standard Open NH Flat Race (Class 4)
- 1m 7f 124y,
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Shown ability in three runs in bumpers including when fourth at Wetherby (good-to-soft) last time out. Likely to run his race once more.
Placed in a point-to-point in Ireland last April and was beaten just 1L in a soft ground bumper at Haydock on Rules debut last month. Leading contender in this contest.
Never involved when beaten 46L in a bumper over an extended 1m6f at Newcastle (soft) on debut last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Unraced son of Intikhab sold for £7,000 as a two-year-old. Half-brother to a dual Flat winner and worth a check in the market on debut.
