Nibbled in the betting prior to his debut at Wolverhampton in March (extended 1m1f) but he was green and dropped away to finish last of the eight runners; sold out of James Tate's stable for 9,000gns this month; bred to do much better at some point.

0-16, but has caught the eye in staying on steadily to finish sixth in both starts at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) since joining this yard; down another 2lb and his best efforts have come over this trip; interesting.

Took his record to 0-15 when finishing in midfield over C&D on his recent stable debut, keeping on steadily under a hand ride (80-1); that run strongly suggested he retained ability and it will be interesting to see if there's market interest in him this time.

Form & Verdict
Green when a beaten joint-favourite on his Thirsk debut in May; better run when third of 20, beaten over 4l, at Doncaster last month (1m, good; strong form); turned over at 2-7f at Bath three weeks ago; huge chance if back to the Doncaster form now tackling 7f for the first time but the latest outing does leave him with a point to prove.

Off the mark in 7f maiden on final start for Saeed bin Suroor; comfortably held in two handicaps (1m2f/1m) for new stable; however, first-time blinkers may prompt a revival off reduced mark.

Four runs for Saeed bin Suroor last season, culminating in a narrow victory in an uncompetitive Leicester maiden (7f); sold for 18,000gns in October; up in trip and fitted with a hood; ground a query, but he's unexposed.

Struggled at big prices in her maiden/novice runs and it was the same story on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) last month; still very lightly raced but she needs a transformation.
