No. 6 Draw 2

Very well-bred colt who failed to get his head in front in Ireland (sold from Aidan O'Brien 30,000 gns in July), showing fairly useful form at his best but also signs of temperament. Handicap debut.

In good form over this trip, making all in Lingfield and Windsor handicaps the last twice under this rider. Wouldn't rule out in hat-trick bid from favourable high draw.

Much improved this season, winning 1m handicaps at Chepstow and this track. Not seen to best effect back here 24 days ago (form working out) and a player up in trip.

Back on the up when winning 9.5f Wolverhampton handicap 4 weeks ago. That form isn't looking great but he could have more to offer despite 5 lb rise.

Going the right way, improving from his wide-margin Nottingham win (10.2f) up 11 lb when going close in a stronger race at Goodwood over further. Not sure drop in trip is ideal but clearly dangerous.

Opened his account in style in 12-runner handicap at Salisbury (9.9f) last month under this rider. Travelled well but didn't stay 12f at Kempton next time and could do better back down in trip here.

Won 9.5f maiden at Wolverhampton in January. Gelded since last seen in April, has some strong bits of form to his name and returns still not fully exposed. Interesting.
