Form & Verdict
Admirably consistent over 7f on turf last year, and lost out only by a neck to Sadiqaa off today's mark at Newmarket (good to firm) in September; made low-key reappearance on Polytrack last month but might well have needed that outing; each-way claims at least.

On a fair mark judged on his close third from 2lb higher over 7f here (soft) last month but not matched that form twice since, albeit he may have found the race coming to soon at Haydock last time; usually seen over further these days, but should be fine over this stiff 6f and each-way claims.

Thriving and better than ever this season, winning at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft; Merricourt fourth; race worked out well) in April and going down only narrowly here (1m, soft) 11 days ago; not short of speed and today's drop back to 7f should be ideal; looks the one to beat.
