- Watch Irish Racing On Racing TV Handicap (Class 4)
- 6f 212y,
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Twice a winner over 6f as a juvenile on a sound surface (Ripon and Catterick); kicked off life in handicaps high enough in the weights as a result; is easing slowly; 3L third to Smile A Mile over 1m here (gd/fm) last month; ground?
Impressive 7L winner on debut at Wolverhampton (1m½f) last October; steadily regressive in each subsequent start (0-4); declared as a non-runner here on Saturday under nigh identical testing conditions; opposed.
Consistent during a six-race juvenile career; 5lb lower than when beaten by ¾L on heavy ground at Ayr's Western meeting (7f+) in September 2018; didn't get home after showing pace on seasonal reappearance at Musselburgh; stronger for that race?
Short-head winner at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) earlier in the season and broadly near enough that form in both subsequent starts; clearly coped well with soft ground as a juvenile; probably the horse to beat on all known form.
