Had nothing in hand when edging home at Ayr (1m2f, good) and was only sixth next time after a 4lb rise; cheekpieces tried last time are persevered with but he has been gelded, which may make a difference.

Two 7f AW wins (one here) early in 2021 when trained by Mark Johnston; good first run for this yard over 9.4f but beaten around 5l since, latterly in a first-time visor having been gelded; it could be that 1m4f was too far, but he's not wildly appealing right now.

Two 7f AW wins (one here) in early 2021; ended his time with Mark Johnston with a good second over this trip at Chelmsford in October; very well backed on stable debut 11 days ago but he made a mess of the start and got going too late; runs off the same mark here and shouldn't be underestimated.
