Faded when upped to 1m4f at Ascot last time but he's enjoyed a solid season otherwise over 1m2f and has shaped as though he'll be suited by this sort of trip; might be worth another chance.

Had been enjoying a consistent season prior to a poor one at York in August, when said to have run flat; the break could have helped but he's 9lb higher than when winning at Haydock, so will need a career best on just his second AW start.

Going great guns this term, including with his Old Newton Cup win at Haydock (1m4f, good to firm) and going oh so close in a Shergar Cup race at Ascot 13 days ago; up another 5lb but it's hard to keep him out of the picture, bidding to end Paul Hanagan's superb riding career on a winning note.

Kicked off this campaign with two wins in April and things haven't gone his way the last twice, when third at Pontefract behind two ridden more prominently, and when runner-up at Chester having stumbled at the start; this 3yo could still have more to offer and he's one to consider.

Has been running consistently well in top turf handicaps all summer and wasn't best served by the drop to 1m1f when not beaten far in the Cambridgeshire latest; has a much better strike-rate on the AW (4-6) than turf (1-16) and needs considering.

2lb out of the handicap and is untested at this trip, but he got up close home at Bath (1m2f, good) in June and again kept on well over 1m2f here (good to firm) in July; this 3yo is a possible improver now upped in distance.

Second once over 1m2f on good last August but generally speaking he has been much more interesting on AW, including when runner-up once at 2m; no impact in either sphere on last five starts (given wind surgery after third) so there are major doubts to go alongside his career-low mark.

Not at his best on his last four starts but took step back in right direction at Kempton (1m3f, AW) last time on first run since wind surgery, when the steady gallop was a negative; today's extra furlong is a plus and he might not be far away, having continued to drop down the weights.

Rather underwhelming over hurdles for this yard, even though he managed a win in March, and he was tailed off when last seen in May; however, he was a two-time C&D winner last summer when trained by Eve Johnson Houghton and is not ruled out now back on the Flat after a break.
