Form & Verdict
Needs improvement on recent efforts but he won the big 3yo handicap at this meeting in 2018 (good) and gave his yard its second win in this race in five years when scooting clear 12 months ago (soft; stablemate second); is now 1lb lower and this looks sure to have been the aim.

Looked the likely winner from some way out on Newmarket return (5f, good to firm) but lost two shoes when never involved in the Dash at Epsom next time; things didn't fall his way but still a good fourth to Celsius on the July course since and he remains unexposed; fitting cheekpieces could help.

Just one turf handicap win, over 5f at Chester last August; had excellent AW season for new connections over the winter and although needing some excuses back on turf since, he did race alone when a creditable fifth to Celsius at Newmarket 18 days ago (5f, good to firm; in these aids, retained); needs very best form to win today.

Said to prefer fast ground but he gave a barnstorming performance to win on good to soft on return at Windsor (5f); has not lived up to that effort since going up in the weights, including when third in the Dash at Epsom, but he did lead home his group at Ascot 17 days ago and may yet do better.

Got himself out of a tight spot to win the 3yo C&D handicap at this meeting in 2019; was never right in 2021 but has looked his old self with two 5f wins this season, at Ascot and Newmarket (both on good to firm); neither was emphatic but he's not the type to stretch away, his last five handicap wins coming by fairly narrow margins; looks good for another big run.
