Trevor and Ruth Milner silk

Has shown ability in 3 starts over 7f on the AW, most recently finishing fourth of 10 in a Chelmsford novice. Appeals as the type to do better now handicapping, but others preferred all the same.

Opened his account at the seventh time of asking in 8.6f Wolverhampton handicap. 5 lb rise fair enough, but needs to prove that he can match that form returned to turf and back at 7f.

Failed to go on from an encouraging start here as a 2yo, but step back in the right direction when fourth on return/handicap bow at Newmarket (7f, good to soft). However, this looks a tougher race.

Still seeking first taste of success (0-11), but has found just one too good with cheekpieces enlisted in 7f handicaps at Newmarket and Yarmouth the last twice. Should make his presence felt.

Off the mark in 7f Kempton novice in January and solid placed efforts off this mark at Chester and Haydock (both good to soft) the last twice. Still, some of these appear to possess greater potential.

Well held on debut in April, but has subsequently shaped well in maidens at Lingfield (7f) and Salisbury (6f). Return to this trip looks a good move and may well improve now pitched into a handicap.
