Moderate form in three juvenile starts; since gelded; half-brother to two 1m winners, so no surprise if there's improvement for this step up in trip now entering handicaps.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Unproven on softer than good; has form figures of 112113 in handicaps, the wins gained over 1m-1m2f on turf; ran well on AW last time; may not have stopped improving yet; major player, provided he stays this new trip.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Made it 4-5 in handicaps on turf this season when seeing off five rivals over 1m2f at Newmarket three weeks ago; that was his first attempt over this trip and a 4lb rise is unlikely to prevent him making a bold bid if proving as effective on AW.

Form & Verdict
Stepped up on juvenile form when 4l fourth on handicap debut at Doncaster (7f, soft) in April; unable to improve on that at Musselburgh (7f, good) latest, when running as if this trip would be worth a try; cheekpieces go on; drops 2lb; likely player.
