Form & Verdict
Contested two 1m-1m1f turf maidens here last season; ran on after slow start on debut but couldn't recover from slow start next time; has good pedigree for this switch to dirt but is expected to need the run, his slow starts are a concern and he's been overlooked by the stable jockey.

Ex-Charlie Appleby; fitted with cheekpieces when always behind in 1m2f AW novice last October (9-2); sold for 10,000gns in February; needs to be much sharper and, although a half-brother to 8.5f/1m1f dirt Grade 1 winner Maxfield, he looks the stable second string on jockey bookings.
