Promising colt who has won a couple of Newmarket novice events (good to firm) with something to spare, latest over C&D; sire Dubawi won this race in 2004 and trainer has landed this prize four times in the last eight years; very strong credentials.

Runner-up to subsequent Group 2 winner Ancient Truth on debut at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) in May then won readily at Goodwood (6f, good); disappointing 4-1 shot in Group 2 Railway Stakes at the Curragh (6f, yielding) 19 days ago but he was upset in the stalls and retains potential, especially given how well the Goodwood form has worked out.

Half-brother to decent 3yo miler Bright Stripes made promising debut in Newmarket novice last month before landing odds in similar Goodwood contest, showing a bright turn of foot to win readily (third and fourth have won since); upped in grade but every chance he could be up to it; softer ground an unknown.
