First run for Grant Tuer after leaving Charlie Wallis when fair third at Musselburgh (7f, good); beaten under 2l when fifth at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) ten days ago; yet to prove he stays 1m and remains a maiden on turf after 11 attempts.

Form & Verdict
Has gained last three wins at Ayr; close second to Brazen Bolt there 18 days ago but was able to dictate the pace and it remains to be seen whether this race pans out as favourably; yet to score above Class 5.

Successful five times in the last 12 months, most recently at Ayr (7f, good) two starts ago; creditable third under a penalty at York four days later, faring best of those held up; tactically versatile (equally effective racing prominently) and remains largely consistent; solid chance.
