Made a successful stable debut after five months off here (7f) in February, but has been a beaten favourite in all three outings since; won over 1m in Ireland, so the return to this trip is not a problem, and he won when blinkered for the first time, so interesting to see if the application of cheekpieces has a similar effect.

Won back-to back earlier in the year including a C&D success and bounced back from lesser efforts when beaten just 1l over C&D on her penultimate start; well below form back on turf when last seen though and has a poor draw for her return to AW.
