Dual winner at Chepstow (1m/1m2f) in the first half of this year; ran creditably from his revised mark when fourth of ten at Brighton (1m4f, good to firm) last time but he'll need a bit more to resume winning ways.

Form & Verdict

Both wins since arriving from Germany have come on the AW at Lingfield (1m2f) and his close second at Kempton (1m4f) three weeks ago was at least as good in terms of form; today's intermediate trip should be ideal; probably just as effective on turf; leading contender.
