Looked suited by return to positive tactics and would probably have won anyway when left clear for wide-margin success at Newton Abbot (3m2f, heavy) in October; 8lb higher here but the quicker ground won't be a problem and he's quite lightly raced for his age.

Left clear late on in a Fakenham mares' handicap in January (3m, heavy; RPR 92), having been on top at the time anyway, and posted solid follow-up effort down in trip; still on a fair mark despite latest 3lb rise; one of the better ones if ready to go after eight-month break.

Maiden; mixed bag so far but dam (prolific) and granddam each started winning points for the same handler once turning eight, so best days may be yet to come; 2m5f on good here last time (chase debut) appeared too much of a speed test, and soft ground is likely all to the good.
