Twice runner up over 1m2f/1m4f on the AW last year, but his turf efforts (including over hurdles) don't match up; 0-13 under both codes and he needs the tongue-tie to make a difference.

1m4f winner when trained in France and there have been signs of encouragement since joining this yard, as when third of nine at Salisbury (7f, good) last month; return to a longer trip looks to be in his favour and makes more appeal than many; stable also runs Neminos.

1-17 but placed ten times, as when a strong-finishing second of ten at Windsor (1m, good) 11 days ago; clearly needs everything to fall just right, but races off the same mark as last time so he is likely to play some sort of part.
