Often leads; has acted on soft but both handicap wins came on good ground over 7f; respectable efforts in two 6f handicaps last year without looking a natural at the trip and looks one for another day.

A dual Group 2 winner, namely the Royal Lodge as a 2yo and the Dante at York (extended 1m2f) last May; limitations exposed in top company later in his 3yo campaign but still recorded RPRs good enough to win a race like this; tackles AW for the first time after a five-month break.
