Eight-race maiden who has consistently knocked at the door; promoted to second place behind Speed Dating at Southwell (1m) a fortnight ago, and in the process extracted his revenge on Nottingham conqueror Ami Li Bert.
Drops back slightly in trip after finishing ninth of 13 (25-1) in a 1m2f novice at Chelmsford 15 days ago.
Didn't achieve anything of great significance in novice races (7f-1m); switches to handicapping at a realistic level but with plenty of improvement needed; others preferred.
Returned from a five-month absence to make her nursery debut at Kempton (1m), finishing in excess of 10L seventh (of 11) to Fantasy Believer; cheekpieces are now applied.
Nine-race maiden; 3lb higher than when finishing 2¼L second to Ventura Destiny at Newcastle (7f) three starts back; stamina a slight doubt; is considered as a possible player nevertheless.
Sprung a surprise (33-1) when off the mark at Chelmsford (1m2f) in October; met trouble in the run when a keeping on third over C&D ten days ago; competes from the same mark (55) today; chance.
Beat today's rivals Never Said Nothing (second) and Goddess Of Fire (third) when winning in the mud at Nottingham (1m2f, heavy) on his penultimate start; the Jonathan Portman-trained gelding reversed that form at Southwell next time.
Has eased 7lb in the weights since introduced to handicapping; weakened inside the final furlong when finishing in the ruck in a seller at Lingfield (1m) 17 days ago.
Brought his record to 0-6 when finishing seventh of 12 to Bavardages in a 1m Class 6 nursery at Chelmsford three weeks ago; has eased another 4lb in the handicap since.
Wasn't beaten all that far (less than 3L) when sixth of ten to Schumli (Camacho Man fourth) on nursery debut here (7f) last month; it's debatable as to whether or not this extra yardage will suit but remains low-mileage.
Eight-race maiden; has picked up slightly since wind surgery; 2lb higher than when runner up to Bavardages at Chelmsford (1m) three weeks ago.
