His win in France came at 1m4f but he was placed at Salisbury (7f) on his penultimate run and was denied only in the final strides at Goodwood (1m1f) on latest outing; 2lb higher here from wide draw but he's strongly respected back on AW.

C&D effort five weeks ago can be forgiven (first run for 193 days and he is a tricky ride for an apprentice) but he will probably need them to go very hard up front to have a winning chance kept to 1m.

His sole win was at 50-1 at Salisbury (1m, good) last summer but he's run well in all three starts this season including a close second behind Gigi's Beach at Lingfield (1m, AW) last month; nudged up 2lb for that but he should be in the mix again.
