Form & Verdict

Still holds a 2,000 Guineas entry, which looks optimistic as things stand but shows that he's held in some regard; unplaced favourite at Doncaster (7f) on reappearance but went very close over this C&D (good) last October and holds leading claims if bouncing back to that form.

More potent upped to 1m6f (with Adam Farragher) when cheekpieces were initially enlisted for his last two starts last season, notably for a clearcut win over C&D (good to soft); 8lb higher today and has not fired in the same way in his three starts this term; headgear now removed.

More potent upped to 1m6f when cheekpieces were initially enlisted (they've been kept since) for his last two starts last season; underwhelming in the Northumberland Plate (raced a bit freely) on reappearance and tailed off on heavy going at Goodwood one week ago, but he should stay 2m.

Three wins over 2m, the most recent at Chepstow (heavy) in October; shapes as if this longer distance is worth exploring but still has something to prove in strongly contested handicaps, having been well held in the Boodles here last year and the Imperial Cup at Sandown last Saturday.

This is more competitive than he's used to and he was only third of six at Newbury last Saturday; however, that was still a fair run from this 5yo following a 140-day break, and the form of his small-field handicap win at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in October reads well; each-way possibilities.

Entered in the Dante and the Derby; promising third in Doncaster maiden (7f, soft) last October, staying on nicely to fare best of the newcomers; should be well suited by this longer trip and beyond; interesting contender, with improvement on the cards.
