Placed this term over 1m6f (twice) and 1m4f (third to Midnights Legacy at Epsom) before he won at Chester on first attempt at 2m; raised 5lb, which demands another career best, but that was a clearcut win and he's one to consider.

All wins have been between June and August; less consistent this year than in previous two seasons but he won tidily with a late bid at Ayr (1m5f) last time and also stays 1m6f; going back up 3lb isn't too harsh but he is comparatively exposed and this race may well prove a bit too competitive.

Mostly highly competitive last term and has surged to new heights this season; won a valuable 16-runner race at Newmarket (1m6f, soft) in May and beaten a neck at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm) nine weeks ago; raised another 5lb but needs respect.

Form & Verdict

Defied a mammoth absence to win at Chester (1m5f) in May 2021 and took minor honours in four of his six starts later last year (stays 2m); 33-1 when below-form 11th in the Northumberland Plate on recent return, but he may have needed that run and plenty of form suggests that this is a good mark.

Defied a mammoth absence to win at Chester (1m5f) in May and has taken minor honours in four of his five starts since, in the process showing he stays 2m; sole AW start was in 2018 (not disgraced here) but he has a fair chance if proving fully effective on the surface.

Form & Verdict

Highly progressive last June-September, winning five handicaps on the way and impressive at Haydock (1m6f, good to firm) on final occasion; back to that form in Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (2m, AW) 13 days ago, making a move from off the pace over 2f out; needs to resume improvement but there was promise in that recent display.

Highly progressive last June-September, winning five handicaps on the way and he was impressive in five-runner race at Haydock (1m6f, good to firm) on final start; raised another 9lb but it's very hard to rule out further progress and he has an Ascot Gold Cup entry.
