Landed the John Smith's Cup over 1m2f in 2020; has reinvented himself as a miler this term and regained the winning thread in notable handicap at Sandown (good to firm) on Eclipse day; two subsequent races have not panned out favourably; possibilities provided he's effective back up in trip.

Yet to win above Group 3 level; fourth in this race last year (also ran well on very soft in France the time before) but the balance of his 2023 form, latterly over 1m2f, suggests that effort is far from certain to be repeated; came up short in the Lockinge when last seen over 1m.

1-22 for this yard (last two seasons) with the win on the Newmarket July course last summer; 3lb lower today and well treated on form as recent as end of September; needs to bounce back from a last of 12 on reappearance three weeks ago but that was his AW debut; needs a second look.

This a belated first attempt on AW (31st start) but he was runner-up on last year's reappearance and returns from 1lb below the mark he defied at Newmarket (1m) last summer; also handily drawn so there are reasons to be positive.

Won two 1m novice events on AW at Newcastle early last year; 0-5 in handicaps but he has a solid record in three starts this season including when third on his step back up to 1m2f at Windsor (good to firm) last time; that was bold bid behind an unexposed improver from the Gosden yard and he's a big player off the same mark here.

Showed a form revival at Newcastle (7f, AW; close second) on reappearance but the forecast slow ground is a negative returned to turf; below-par ninth on heavy in this contest last year; best efforts on good/firmer.
