Raced at 5f; displayed significant improvement to win novice on Wolverhampton's Tapeta in June but he hasn't got near that level in three turf starts either side; hardly looks to be crying out for 7f and he's drawn wide so his claims aren't obvious, for all that he's with a good yard.

Form & Verdict
Ran into a smart rival when a front-running second at Ripon (6f, good) on debut but was beaten 12l in that race and he struggled in the Woodcote at Epsom last time; this looks more realistic on drop in trip but he's not easy to weigh up and others are more persuasive; tongue-tie added.

0-8, but placed six times as when beaten just over a length into second of eight behind Bazball over C&D (first-time blinkers) in August; now 7lb better off, but hasn't progressed in two outings since whereas his old rival has stepped up again; another placing may be his best hope.
