Strode clear for an 11l success in Meydan handicap (1m2f, good) two months ago, recording a smart RPR; however, it remains to be seen whether he can transfer that improved form back to British soil and he's the stable second-string/ with William Buick on board Ottoman Fleet.

Progressive on turf last year; completed a hat-trick when he won 6.5f sales race at Doncaster, then ended the season with good third in 7f Group 3 at Newmarket (winner followed up in Breeders' Cup race); leading player provided he takes to first-time hood and copes with new trip/surface.

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.

Progressive form in three-race 2yo career, midfield in Group 3 at Leopardstown (1m1f, good) on final start; gelded subsequently; needs to bounce back, however, from a disappointing return in a conditions event at Kempton (1m, AW; set early pace) two months ago; bred to stay 1m2f.
