Form & Verdict
Promising handicap debut in the spring (first-time cheekpieces) but has struggled since; goes beyond an extended 1m3f for the first time on his AW debut and the stiffer test needs to help (half-brother Dancing Harry a dual 1m6f winner this summer).

Rewarded good support when stepped up to 2m+ last September (Blue Beret third) and last week's effort, when seemingly unsuited by returning to shorter before forced wide, was better than it looks; place prospects if okay on Polytrack.

Last three starts have come over about 2m on Tapeta, getting off the mark at the ninth attempt here in September and running well back at this venue next time; stopped quickly in his most recent outing at Southwell and has something to prove after that, not least over the shorter trip.

Suited by the step up in trip when winning at Wolverhampton (16.5f, Tapeta) in September and fared best of those who raced prominently when fourth over that C&D last time out in October; remains unexposed over staying trips and he could well return to winning ways today.

Poor maiden under both codes; one of his better efforts over 1m6f here last time but was still a long way off the progressive winner at a huge price and again only holds outside claims.
