Form & Verdict

Has low mileage; won at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) on seasonal debut; pair of duck eggs at major festivals since (1m4f/1m6f) but looks better than the bare form suggests; first-time hood may spark a return to best.

Won the Ebor Handicap last season before about 3l third to Trueshan and Coltrane in this race on good to soft, unraced on worse; absent nearly six months before recent wide-margin, front-running wins at odds-on in very small fields for a 1m6f conditions race at Salisbury and 2m Listed race at Newmarket; faces a vastly more competitive field but looks better than ever.

Improved for staying trips and fitting of a hood last year, notably winning prestigious Ebor handicap at York and third in Group 2 Long Distance Cup at Ascot; disappointing in Saudi Arabia and Meydan in his two runs this spring but conditions should be ideal on this return to Britain and he has strong claims if he can get back near best after a break.
