Now 0-9 but he did have some reasonable form for Donnacha O'Brien in Ireland and he might have needed the outing when midfield (September Power second) over C&D two weeks ago; eased 2lb.

Galileo colt; 0-8 for Donnacha O'Brien last year, though made the frame on four occasions (1m4f/1m5f); sold for 25,000gns and had wind surgery since last run; heed the market signals on debut for new yard.

Form & Verdict
Needs the cards to drop right as he's usually held up and not always a smooth traveller; below par at Lingfield two weeks ago; however, has consistent form at up to 1m4f here and gives the impression he may improve for this new trip; one to consider off a workable mark.

Couple of creditable efforts at Kempton (1m3f/1m4f) since having wind surgery; 1-1 at Lingfield and that success came at around this time last year; interesting back here, granted a well-run race (usually held up; not always a smooth traveller).

His form can be up and down but he made it two wins from his last three starts when scoring over C&D in September last time out; a 3lb rise isn't harsh and he can be in the mix if at the top of his game after a break.

Something to prove on softer than good after two attempts; strike-rate was looking unimpressive until he won over 2m at Beverley and Kempton on two of his last three starts; came from a detached last on latest outing and that's tricky to execute here but he was capable of a bit better still in his 2020 peak form and will relish every yard.
