Has shown improvement since handicapping and went down by only half a length when second of 12 on his return from six months off at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) 20 days ago; 3lb higher, but this is a slight drop in grade and any improvement from that latest effort puts him firmly in the mix.

Showed little in four starts on the AW, but caused a 28-1 surprise when making a successful turf debut over C&D (good to firm) a fortnight ago; not sure how strong that form is and this looks a deeper race, but he remains completely unexposed on grass; respected up 4lb.
