Front-runner; unsuccessful in May's hat-trick bid but was far from disgraced in defeat; can once again prove a danger if allowed to dictate the pace.

Has run four very similar races thus far, never beaten by less 4l but never by as far as 6l (all over 5f on turf); change of trip/surface may suit; won recent barrier trial and returning from 11-week absence.

Not the most consistent but opened his Hong Kong account when scoring over C&D last month; 7lb rise for that victory demands another step forward.

Placed on a number of occasions over C&D this season but his losing run now dates back to September 2020; however, he looks capable of striking off his current mark.
