Very useful handicapper who usually front-runs; better than ever when going down only narrowly in a valuable 1m handicap at York's Ebor meeting (good to firm) 16 days ago but he'll need to up his game to go close in this higher grade.

Benefited from a fine front-running ride to win easily over C&D (good to firm) last month and went close when unpenalised at Catterick (7f, good to firm) five days later; he's progressive but his new 8lb higher mark has kicked in and that could find him out in this higher grade.

Made it three wins for the season at Sandown (7f, good) in July and he's also effective on slow ground; his improvement has stalled since but he's continued to run well and a steady pace may have been against him at Ascot last time; the first-time cheekpieces could be a plus and he's respected.

0-6 since his 1m Listed win at Pontefract last October (subsequent Irish Derby winner Westover in second) and hasn't progressed; faded in Goodwood handicap three weeks ago on first crack at 1m2f and needs to prove his stamina, but he made some promising headway in the straight on that first outing since March and may have needed the run; interesting contender.

33-1 for the 20-runner Lincoln at Doncaster (1m) on reappearance six weeks ago but won it comfortably from Lattam, coming smoothly from off the pace; 7lb higher today; chief concern is probably that all his turf runs for this yard last term were on soft and all his three career wins have been on soft, but 1m1f is no problem and he had plenty of form on good or firmer in 2021 and 2022; has to be considered.
