Sole win over 7f on turf as 2yo; running well on AW and although no match for Zealot over C&D last month he does have a big weights pull with that one; another fair effort here on Sunday and should be thereabouts.

Hasn't coming close to justifying a prominent market position on both handicap runs but a slow start left him poorly positioned in a steadily run contest at Wolverhampton last time and he retains potential as a lightly raced type in good hands.

Couldn't justify favouritism on handicap debut at Kempton in October (1m; tongue-tie first time, absent today) but still ran creditably; possible he will need more emphasis on stamina before he's seen to best effect.

Improved effort when second on his stable debut at Windsor three weeks ago (1m, good), pulling clear with the winner having been carried left in the closing stages; tongue-tied for his handicap debut; more to come but not obviously thrown in for his handicap debut.
