Proved hugely underwhelming on debut at Ayr (6f; good to firm) when sent off 2-1jf. Was very green though, and is entitled to be an entirely different proposition now with experience on his side.
Made pleasing enough debut when fourth at Ayr (6f; good to soft) in a race which was full of runners with experience. That contest was probably of similar strength to this one, so he is a major player if straighter this time round.
Has already been gelded ahead of making his debut. Dam was a winner over this trip as a two-year-old. Stable not readily associated with winning newcomers so he is best watched for now.
Suffered a heavy defeat at York (7f; good) recently when stepped up in trip. Back down to 6f now, but he is impossible to fancy on all that he has shown so far. Look elsewhere.
Took a step forward from underwhelming debut effort to finish runner-up at Ayr (6f; good to firm) to one that has won again under a penalty. Should be bang there if progressing again.
Did very little wrong to finish a promising fourth on debut at Haydock (6f; good to soft). The form of that contest has already been franked by the runner-up, and with improvement expected he is one of the leading players.
Took a very minor step forward from debut effort where he failed to beat a rival to finish fourth at Redcar (7f; good to firm) when last seen. Would still have to step up markedly on the basis of that. Best watched.
Bated Breath filly. Cost 22,000gns as a yearling. Related to fairly talented Coolmore Group-placed/winner The Happy Prince. Likely to have a future, but trainer is 0-17 with two-year-olds in the last five years.
