Won two in a row at Southwell (5f, AW) in first part of spring and this front-runner has been running well in defeat on turf since, most recently second of 14 at Hamilton on Sunday when faring much the best of those drawn high; faces a battle for the lead and this is a tougher race than last time, but the speedy nature of York should suit his style and he's not ruled out.

Dual 6f Polytrack winner for Mark Johnston as a 2yo and was having his second start for this yard (and since being gelded) when winning in a first-time hood over C&D last month (Fine Wine and Media Guest behind); 5lb higher and much depends on whether the headgear works again, but he looks the type with still more to offer.
