Built on promising second place finish on debut when winning over an extended 7f at Beverley (good) last time out. Penalised for that victory and holds strong claims once more.
Good ½L second in a 6f novice race at Carlisle (good-to-firm) on last months debut. Improvement likely and is a notable runner stepping up in distance.
Well held in both starts so far including when fifth of eight behind Walk In Marrakesh over an extended 7f at Beverley (good) last time out. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Unraced Dragon Pulse colt purchased for £75,000 as a yearling last August. Full-brother to Listed-placed debut winner Chicas Amigas and is worth a check in the market on debut.
Attempted to make all when finishing 4L second in a three runner novice race on heavy ground at Haydock (6f) on debut just over a month ago. Likely more needed in this contest.
