Recorded a second career win when scoring on seasonal reappearance at Chepstow (1m4f, good to firm) but came up short on handicap debut at Goodwood one month later; stamina to prove over 2m.
Closely related to the top-class stayer Order Of St George; shown a strong level of form (improving) on all three starts to date, keeping on well behind a useful Godolphin 3yo at Pontefract (1m4f, good) latest; of major interest on handicap debut.
Hasn't progressed since finishing a respectable third to Sir Ron Priestley at Ripon (1m4f, good) in April; blinkers are applied as he seeks to get back on the right track.
A consistent, yet fairly exposed seven-race maiden; eased very marginally in the weights since finishing third on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (1m4f) earlier this month; a real surprise if she's good enough to take this contest.
On an upward curve posting back-to-back wins at Catterick (2m, soft) and Chelmsford (1m6f); carries a 6lb penalty for that latest neck win (beat a six-race maiden); clearly on a good handicap mark, and the 5lb claim of his rider is also a boost.
