15:00 Brighton Fri 9 August 2019
Running well since joining this yard in May and followed shock Bath win (1m) with a pair of placed efforts over further. Up in trip again having tried it once in Ireland but that can be ignored and should go close.
Bred to be better than shown but has shown very little for two previous trainers and has been sold for just 2,000 gns since last seen. Hard to be positive about.
Ex-Irish, didn't show much on first run for this yard but it was a different story at Lingfield last week when he won with plenty in hand over 1m2f. Up 2f today but shapes like he should stay and 2lb well in here.
Best run was a third over this distance at Yarmouth three starts ago and hasn't stayed 1m6f in both runs since. Claims if a return to this trip brings about improvement which is a possibility.
Improved when front-running and stepped up to 1m2f to finish 5L third in Leicester seller last week. Now up another 2f and at least that winner has franked the form in a non-seller this week.
