Impressive 10L winner of a maiden over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton in November. Lightly-raced for his age and is one for the shortlist for a leading stable on handicap debut.
Well beaten in two turf starts since returning from wind surgery. Return to the AW no issue but probably best watched at present.
Good third in a small field 1m4f handicap at Doncaster (good) last September. Well beaten at York the following month however and makes his seasonal debut having been gelded in the interim.
Course winner was beaten a head when runner-up in a 1m4f handicap at Kempton last month. Good fifth over an extended 1m4f at Newcastle subsequently and is interesting dropping in distance.
Put a disappointing effort behind him when finishing 1L fourth in a 1m1f handicap at Newmarket (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Races off the same mark here and has won over this distance in the past.
Six time winner most recently by a head in a C&D handicap early last month. Run well on both subsequent starts including when 3¼L fourth here three weeks ago.
Fair form in three starts in Dubai earlier this year but finished well beaten in first time cheekpieces (absent here) over this trip at Kempton in March. Has won over this C&D in the past.
