Improved from his debut when winning an Epsom maiden (7f, good to soft) in July but didn't get home over the same C&D (soft) last month; there is stamina in his pedigree but he needs to bounce back on nursery/AW debut.

£200,000 yearling who got off the mark in gritty fashion at Southwell (7f Tapeta) a month ago; that wasn't a bad race and, while he has a good bit further to go here, this mark could be okay if he stays.

Comparatively exposed, with record only 1-14, and has edged up the weights; however, he's in good form having gone close in three of his last four outings, latest at Chelmsford (1m2f); could go well again.

Consistent since blinkers went on and will be 3lb higher from tomorrow for last Monday's Kempton near-miss (one of three to come away despite edging left); can miss the break and pull hard but could well get this run to suit, so needs considering.
