ON THE RECORD looks a typical O'Neill summer project, boasting steady progression before landing a first success at Chepstow in April. Though absent since, he's bred for the winter game and can surely only go one way after a mere six starts. Lucinda Egerton's small string is running well and Bollin Line should be thereabouts. A gradual improver, his second of nine to Master Of The Hall last time puts him right in the mix along with probable improver Northern Executive. Genny Wren is capable and Agent Louise has to be considered if able to repeat her recent improvement when coming from the clouds to win at Uttoxeter as she's only 3lb higher now.
