Moving up to 2m4f worked a treat when he won stylishly here (good) in April; he again travelled and ran on well when second in Grade 2 at Wetherby (good to soft) two weeks ago on step up to 3m; this is a much stiffer track but he's going the right way and now has potential as a stayer.

Headed on the line when making handicap debut in the Martin Pipe here (2m4f, soft) in 2020 but last winter was a washout; looked more his old self when winning at Sandown in December (2m7f, good to soft) but a rather laboured effort off 6lb higher over C&D in January leaves him with something to prove with cheekpieces refitted (pulled up in them once over fences).
