Form & Verdict
185,000euros yearling; shaped with some promise in novice events but he found improvement upped to 1m2f on handicap debut when going close at Newmarket (good) last month; up 2lb but that latest form has been boosted by the winner since and he has plenty of scope for further progress; big player.

Better since switched to turf (good ground last three starts) and upped to this trip, on last two occasions winning easily at Chester and by a neck with late bid over C&D; raised another 8lb, which demands plenty more again, but may have more to give.
