Reached the top of his curve when winning this off 2lb lower in 2021 (soft; also a C&D winner on good) and although he hasn't climbed any higher since he acts so well here he has to be considered, even if Adam Kirby seemingly prefers Aratus.

This is the fourth year in succession that he's returned to action in this race (downgraded to a 0-95 this year), finishing fifth twice and a close second in 2022; showed only flashes of his old spark in a disappointing 2023 campaign but he is down to a good mark if a five-month break has piqued his interest; stable have made a quiet start to 2024 but he has too much talent to be ignored at this level.

First reserve; 9lb lower than when winning for the Gosdens at Doncaster (1m, good) last June; with new yard this term, twice runner-up (1m2f and sole run at 1m4f) abroad early in the year; below form on both outings back in Britain, given wind surgery in between; mostly wears cheekpieces these days but it was blinkers last time; others are more convincing.

9lb lower than when winning for the Gosdens at Doncaster (1m, good) last summer and twice runner-up abroad in five starts for this yard this year; has undergone wind surgery since last seen and first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces, but others are more convincing.

All four wins have come over 7f; ran well on his return from 14 months off at Lingfield (1m, AW) in March, but didn't build on it over the same C&D last month; enough to prove back in trip returned to turf.

Dual course winner (7f) who returned from 412 days off with a staying-on fifth in a Class 2 event over C&D last month; wasn't beaten far at a big price in that race and he looks interesting on this big drop back in grade.

Three-time AW winner for Sir Mark Prescott before being sold for 26,000gns; has rather struggled this year, having undergone a second round of wind surgery, and isn't obviously fancied.

Form & Verdict

Way back over C&D on heavy going in the autumn but basically quite progressive at 7f previously and returned in good order when close up at Haydock (good to firm) 14 days ago; this is his most competitive handicap to date but may well improve further.

Suited by good to soft or slower but handles most surfaces; comes into it on a close second at York in May (7f) and although he didn't pick up the way he can at Goodwood recently (has won there) he is still one to be interested in with a tongue-tie fitted.
