Multiple winner at up to 1m6f, once for Patrick Millman; all turf wins on good to firm or firm; back from 13 months off in May and signs of a revival when fifth at Bath in June; never involved behind Psyche on AW since (cheekpieces refitted, now discarded) and easier tasks await.

His seven wins have all been at middle distances but he has form at up to 2m and is ideally suited on slow ground; last success was in July 2021 but that was off 3lb higher and he returned to turf with an eyecatching fourth at Pontefract (1m4f, soft) ten days ago; kept on well out wide in that race and he looks interesting back up in trip.

Mostly hurdling these days although he returned to the Flat to win over 2m under Eleanor Williams last August (2m, good); only just above that winning mark but this looks competitive.

5-28 on AW compared to 1-17 on turf; may have needed his only start this summer (50-1, turf) and he's well handicapped given some of last year's AW and turf form, so he needs a second look in the returning cheekpieces which did the trick for him off this mark over C&D last December.
