Third in the Group 2 Queen's Vase over C&D (good) at the Royal meeting before Listed win at Hamilton (1m3f, good to soft) and Group 3 near-miss at Goodwood (1m4f, soft); well beaten in the St Leger (1m6f, soft) three weeks ago but has to be respected under a 3lb penalty in view of his earlier form.

Just over 5l third to Gregory in Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot (1m6f, good); made all in Listed race at Hamilton (1m3f, good to soft) next time and headed only close home by Desert Hero in the Group 3 Gordon Stakes at Goodwood (1m4f, soft); several others have better form but he has found a bit of improvement every time and the step back up in trip will suit him well.

Three wins include a 1m4f handicap at York's Dante meeting in May, coming from off the pace, and 1m3f Listed race at Hamilton (good to soft; evens) 13 days ago, making all; his defeats were on soft ground on reappearance and when third in the 1m6f Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot but he's found a bit of improvement every time and has some of the best form in this field.
