Holds no secrets from the handicapper but ran on well for third when back on turf here (7f, good) ten days ago and will be suited by today's move back up in trip; more appealing than most of these.

No win since the summer of 2020 (Chelmsford) but he is reasonably adaptable in terms of trip (7f-1m); didn't see much daylight when finishing down the field at Newcastle latest (7f; behind Galton; second run back from wind surgery); isn't a forlorn hope.

Nothing like as good as he was; offered a bit more from a wide stall back from wind surgery last time but that was on Polytrack and he doesn't have a good record on Tapeta; Thaayer looks his yard's most interesting runner.

Both wins have been this year at Kempton (7f), last week prevailing narrowly after a charmed run up the inner; has to give weight all round but might be up to it; fine on Tapeta.

Went close at Southwell (7f) last month and she found more progress back at 6f when getting off the mark (ninth attempt) there 18 days ago; finished well to score with authority in that race and a 3lb rise for that success looks fair; big player.
