Showed ability last autumn and, having been gelded, he just got up to make a winning seasonal/handicap debut at Newbury (7f, good to soft; first time cheekpieces) three weeks ago; up 3lb, but gave the impression 1m would suit and is much respected for stable that has won two of the last six runnings.

Pulled up in the early stages when favourite on debut in October; nothing wrong in his three starts since, including maiden and novice wins when odds-on over 1m at Lingfield in December; has a bit more to prove given this is his turf and handicap debut, but he's on a hat-trick.

Has higher mileage than many of these after eight runs and he headed to Haydock 12 days ago as a maiden on turf (dual AW winner) but he put that right in no uncertain terms by quickening away in what had looked a competitive handicap (1m, good); this is tougher and he has to square up to a 6lb rise, but he comes here hot.

7f win here as a 2yo (third start), making all and winning with something to spare; hasn't seen things out in a couple of handicaps on turf this spring but she is edging down the weights and the return to fillies-only company will help too; others look safer all the same.
