Mixed messages regarding this step up in trip based on his two handicap performances, as he faded at Hamilton (1m1f, good to soft) but then stayed on really well for a close third at Ayr (1m, soft); however, on that latest evidence this unexposed 3yo has to be respected now tackling 1m2f.

Consistent sort who has been second on two of his last four starts, at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) in July and at Chester (1m2f, soft) this month; came under early pressure last time so could benefit from the first-time cheekpieces; William Buick is 2-3 for the yard.
