Recorded a hat-trick as a juvenile that culminated in a Listed success at Ascot. Shaped well in the Britannia two runs back and confirmed the promise of that with a win at Hamilton last time out. Still feasibly handicapped and ground in his favour.
Winner on debut and a creditable effort in Listed class at Newcastle (1m) on second start when third of 11. Beaten odds on favourite at Nottingham last time out behind Honest Albert but sure to have more to come.
Won his first two starts and only narrowly denied on handicap debut last time out at Yarmouth in a five runner race. Shaped like he would really appreciate the step back up to this trip and looks a live player from a 3lb higher mark.
Won his first two starts as a juvenile and only narrowly denied in a competitive heat at the Curragh on final start of 2018. Well beaten in handicaps twice this term though and may need more relief from the assessor; up in trip.
Improving of late and defied a slow start to win at Yarmouth last time. Arrives bidding for a hat-trick but this is much tougher and he has a 7lb rise in the weights to cope with.
