Off the mark in a 1m6f handicap here last month and ran just as well when second to an impressive winner two weeks ago; returning to Class 6 company in his favour and he's worth another crack at 2m.

Has enjoyed a good winter, winning twice here (including this trip) before scoring by 5l at Kempton (2m) last month; took quite a keen hold when stepped up to 2m2f here last time and that third in a falsely run race perhaps shouldn't be taken to suggest the handicapper has got him; high on the shortlist.
