Two good front-running efforts here in 2021, winning at 1m4f and only caught late over 2m, but has not looked ahead of the handicapper since and he takes on two with staying potential today.

Form & Verdict
Maiden for previous yards but won in quite taking style when upped to 1m6f on debut for Alan King on Wolverhampton Tapeta in November; one-paced third off this 6lb higher mark back at 1m4f next time; having his first attempt at 2m but has more to come as a stayer.

Still a maiden and best form at up to 1m, with his recent third over 2m here not amounting to much in a slowly run race; still a big question mark about his staying powers.

Form & Verdict
His second at Ffos Las in August was a remote one and was way back on 1m4f handicap debut here in October; however, his dam was an out-and-out stayer (dual 2m2f Flat winner/2m7f over hurdles) so on the cards he will come into his own at 2m.

Finished remote in first handicap, over 1m4f here in October, but pedigree indicated that a staying trip would suit and he kept grinding away when fourth in a slowly run C&D race two weeks ago (similar chance to the third Pentimento); can fare better in a more truly run race.
