Form & Verdict
No match for an impressive winner on his Nottingham debut in October (1m, heavy) but it was still a pleasing debut; no progress switched to AW on second start (1m2f) and now faces another 2f rise in distance; each-way shout.

Stoutly bred and moving up to 1m4f did the trick when he made all in clearcut fashion in 12-runner maiden at Ripon four weeks ago; both his turf runs have been on heavy going and there is more for him to prove away from that, but he looks a useful staying prospect.

Form & Verdict
He has run to a similar level in three runs for Tim Easterby, most recently finishing third of five on his handicap debut at Southwell (1m3f) in February; promise behind good horses on heavy ground at Killarney on his racecourse debut so the surface shouldn't be an issue; sound form claims.
