5-4 favourite when impressive in five-runner novice on debut at Nottingham (5f, soft); the 6l runner-up had shown promise previously and she has strong claims for last year's winning yard (one of two for stable).

38,000gns foal, 45,000gns yearling; first foal; out of a maiden half-sister to three useful performers including Prince Khurram (1m4f Flat/2m-2m3f jumps) and Subcontinent (8.6f-1m2f Flat/2m-3m jumps); has plenty of stamina on dam's side and he could be a longer-term prospect.

Improved form in the tongue-tie the last twice, finishing third at Doncaster (6f, soft) on nursery debut then winning at Chepstow (5f, good to soft); major player under penalty if the better ground isn't an issue.

The return to soft ground and application of a tongue-tie appeared to help when he made a positive nursery debut at Doncaster (6f) latest, where he raced freely and kept on for third; drops 1lb and back in trip; likely to be involved.

Finished some way behind Alfa Whiteburd in the Brocklesby but he found improvement when runner-up at Southwell (AW) eight days later; that was a big step forward but he needs more progress on this return to turf.

Form & Verdict
February foal who cost 55,000euros as a yearling; ran green after an awkward start at Kempton (Polytrack; 6-1) two weeks ago but he kept on well to finish a 3l fourth of nine; that was a promising debut and he should know more this time; respected on this switch to turf.

Stablemate of Array; recorded a soft-ground win (5f) in the spring; behind Haatem in major 2yo races since but wasn't disgraced in the Coventry (6f) and the 7f trip may partly excuse his Superlative and Vintage efforts; not fully exposed at sprint distances.

Beat just two rivals at Leicester in April (5f, soft); ran quite well in the Coventry but has more than 2l to find with Haatem on that form and he was beaten appreciably further by that rival when not getting home over 7f in the Group 2 Superlative; clearly up against it unless he can find a surge of improvement from somewhere.
