half-brother to 8.6f AW winner French Twist (RPR 68); impressive winner of 7f maiden at Leicester in May 2022 and followed up at Haydock in 1m novice stakes under a penalty later that month; completed hat-trick in 1m handicap at Newcastle in June and may now step up to Listed level; finished last in the Golden Mile at Goodwood but ran slightly better than the result implies (badly hampered late on when already beaten); ran another solid race when sixth of eighteen in a 1m heritage handicap at York in August (wore first-time hood); last of sixteen despite being well backed in 7f Ascot handicap in early September (missed break, raced keenly).
