Peak novice form when scoring at Ascot (7f) in July; unable to get near smart Modern Games in nursery at the Doncaster St Leger meeting two months ago (finished sixth) but may well do better in this lower grade.

Largely progressive at two and three; however, hasn't done quite so well this year and his July success (7f, soft) came in a lower grade, sharing the spoils; balance of 2023 form suggests he'll come up well short.

Has done a lot of his racing at 1m but dropping back to 7f was no issue when dead-heating on soft ground at Doncaster two starts back (second run in cheekpieces); fine under these conditions and remains on a workable mark if able to bounce back from a poor one at Chepstow.

Gained back-to-back wins at Newmarket (1m1f, good) and Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) last autumn and was beaten less than a length into third of ten in an amateur riders' event at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) last time; races off the same mark, but this may be an insufficient test for him now.

Form & Verdict

Two from two since upped to 7f, winning nurseries on slow ground at Yarmouth and Newmarket; looks capable of more progress at this distance; major player provided he's as effective on Tapeta.

Inconsistent this year and not much room for manoeuvre off this mark (3lb higher than for his comeback Newcastle win in the spring); won't mind the drop from 1m but whether he'll be able to lead as he likes with Percy's Lad next door is questionable.

Yet to run a poor race on AW, winning twice from four attempts (once here over 7f); good second at Newmarket this month but he was well beaten in a hot race at York last week (too free in first-time cheekpieces, which are left off today); eased in grade but a career best is still required.
