Charles Hill's 7 year old has been blowing hot and cold recently. An established sprinter, the son of Equiano was knocking on the door of group level in 2019.
Managing to win a listed race towards the end of the year, he was then gelded before the 2020 season.
The procedure unlocked some improvement with him winning a listed handicap in Meydan easily before going close in a group 2 while over in Dubai.
His career best run coming off the back of that to be 2nd to Battaash in the 2020 King’s Stand.
His form did dip off thereafter but he looked better than ever back in Dubai last spring. Winning a handicap off a rating of 110 before scoring his first group success.
This season however he’s not looked the same horse. Running a decent enough 5th in the Kings Stand at Ascot this year, he was then soundly beaten in a group 3 at Sandown only two weeks ago.
He’s got to recapture old form to have a say here.
