All three wins at Kempton (7f/1m) for Tom Clover and placed a couple of times on turf for this yard during the autumn; didn't enjoy the clearest of runs when ninth of 12 here (7f) five weeks ago, but wouldn't have won anyway and still to prove he can act on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Five AW wins, including over C&D in December 2020; missed the best part of 2021 and needed his return over 7f in December but he made some late gains when third to Lahan over C&D last month and the slight weights shift suggests he will be very close to that winner here.

Handy sort who has won four of his last five starts and his record over C&D reads 91111; 3lb higher than for his narrow success here three weeks ago, but the form looks sound with the runner-up Baldomero winning back here before going down narrowly in the Lincoln Trial on Saturday; likely to be in the mix.
