Marked improvement the last twice, winning a soft-ground 6f maiden at Ripon in May and following up with a front-running handicap win at Kempton last month (6f); 5lb rise to deal with against stronger opposition but his ceiling is yet to be established.

Lightly raced colt who followed his Ripon maiden win (6f, soft) last month with a front-running success at Kempton nine days ago; penalty asks more of him but it's interesting that Latin Lover won the same Kempton event before defying a penalty in this race 12 months ago; unraced on good or faster.
