A slow start triggered further difficulties for BRAEMAR (nap) on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton and this well-related colt has races in him off his current mark. Rocky Shores is down in distance following his near miss at Brighton, but with him 3lb well-in another bold bid can be expected.[Alistair Jones]

Seemingly progressive having gone down by only a head on handicap debut at Brighton (1m4f, good to soft), having led 1f out; 3lb higher in future and drop back in trip unlikely to hinder.

Soundly beaten in his novice events (7f/1m) but with his dam a half-sister to Workforce the potential was there to be competitive off a modest mark on handicap debut and he duly ran better to be second at Wolverhampton (9.4f) in a race that didn't pan out that favourably (caught wide after slow start); much respected off 2lb higher.

Caught the eye in a 7f Newmarket maiden at the Craven meeting, keeping on well from off the pace; speedy pedigree casts plenty of doubt about him staying this far on handicap debut.

Best efforts last year when winning twice on Newcastle AW in October (7f/1m); gelded after a tame run in November and got back on track when not beaten all that far at Leicester; more exposed than most of these though and now goes beyond a mile for the first time.
