Well-related Derby and King Edward VII entry; green but found his stride late on to be beaten a short head by Cadogan Place when they made their debuts in novice at Southwell (1m3f, AW) in March; breezed up from mid-division and strode out in fine style when winning a maiden at Newbury (1m3f, good to soft) 18 days ago, at 4-5 but nevertheless highly impressive; looks well worth his place in a Classic trial.

Checked out tamely on last month's turf debut (1m3f, good to soft), but had been collared only close home in a C&D novice the time before, on the evidence of which his opening official rating looks manageable; a danger to all, especially if the headgear teases out resources longer still.
