Had looked exposed until finding a rich seam of form this summer, winning on Wolverhampton AW last month and adding further successes at Windsor and Doncaster (5f; both good to firm); displayed his quirks when wandering around at Doncaster but the form has been boosted since; 2lb well in and should make a bold bid for the four-timer.

The winner of two of his three starts as a 2yo; very promising reappearance at Musselburgh (behind Sophie's Star) when he looked rusty and events conspired against him; only seventh in a hot 6f handicap at Newmarket three weeks ago when leaving the impression a return to 5f would suit; likely there's a bigger effort in him and a strongly run race at this trip may prove ideal; interesting.
