Form & Verdict

C&D maiden winner, with Two Metres Apart back in third; and runner-up in five of his six starts since then; consistency is his hallmark, but he is becoming expensive to follow, beaten favourite last three occasions; beaten only a neck last twice, and perhaps blinkers will make the difference.

Four of his seven wins have come at this track, notably over this trip last month under today's rider, getting clear run through up the centre when holding staying-on Musical Tribute by a neck; solid runs in defeat previously including fourth to Inishmot Prince; 4lb rise okay.
