Stepped up on debut when winning by a neck in a 6f novice event at Ripon (good-to-soft) last month. One for the shortlist despite carrying a penalty.
Showed improved form in finishing ½L second in a 7f novice race at Haydock (good-to-soft) recently. One to note dropping in trip.
Unraced Muhaarar colt purchased for 160,000 gns as a yearling last autumn. Dam won over 7f on debut as a three-year-old and was Listed-placed subsequently. Strong claims on debut.
Unraced daughter of Showcasing sold for £50,000 at the sales last year. Dam won three times in sprints and market support would be notable on debut.
Showed up well when finishing 3½L second in a 6f maiden at Hamilton (good-to-soft) when debuting recently. Interesting for a stable with a 23% strike-rate (21/91) in recent weeks.
