Made all for an easy win at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) and followed up at Brighton (1m4f, good) in a race he also won two years earlier; up another 4lb for that but he gels with Simon Walker and it's hard to envisage him not having some say.

Won this race in 2021; he had been banging at the door prior to his comfortable all-the-way success at Goodwood last week (1m1f, soft); Simon Walker on board again and today's longer trip no problem; should make a bold bid to defy a 5lb penalty.

Recorded his third turf win when beating three rivals at Salisbury (1m4f, good to firm) in June but he's not easy to predict and has struggled at Newbury and Epsom since; still unexposed on AW but has a wide draw back in this sphere and others are more convincing.
