Placed on debut over 5f at Windsor (good) in April but failed to build on that in two subsequent starts. Interesting to see how he fares on handicap debut having been gelded since his most recent start.
Improving with racing and ran well to finish 4L fifth in a 7f maiden at Epsom (good) earlier this month. Drop in trip unlikely to inconvenience too much on handicap debut.
Finished 4½L behind Ambyfaeirvine in a 6f contest at Pontefract (good-to-firm) on handicap debut recently. Experienced trouble in running that day and likely capable of much better.
Returned from a short break when a victory in a 6f event at Pontefract (good-to-firm) on handicap debut recently. One for the shortlist under a 6lb penalty.
Ran well to finish 5L second in a 6f maiden at Hamilton (good-to-firm) at the end of last month. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Decent 8L fourth in a 5f novice race at Beverley (good-to-soft) in May on his second racecourse appearance. Disappointed over this trip next time and makes his handicap debut having been gelded in the interim.
Fair form when sixth in a 6f novice contest at Windsor (good) three weeks ago. Beaten 4¾L that day and is worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Signs of ability on two most recent appearances including over 5f on good ground here early last month. Gelded since and market support would be notable switched to handicaps.
Well beaten in three starts so far most recently when 14L eighth of nine in a maiden race at Carlisle (5f, good-to-soft) last month. Stepping back up in trip on handicap debut.
