Had a first-time tongue-tie added to the established cheekpieces when making a successful stable debut at Brighton (6f, good to firm) and then pushed Intervention close when penalised at Yarmouth; there shouldn't be much between the pair here.

Two wins over 6f on turf last summer and took advantage of a drop in the weights to regain winning form at Chelmsford (6f, AW) nine days ago; 2lb rise still leaves him well treated on previous form and another for the shortlist.

Back to a more realistic mark and March's return to action should have blown away any cobwebs; won second time out last season (Rossa Ryan rode) and he's effective over C&D; one to consider.

Beat 15 rivals to win at Doncaster (6f, good) in May and followed up in commanding fashion in 15-runner handicap over this C&D (good to firm); only third of eight off this increased mark at Newmarket (6f, good), and doubt about slow ground, but he's clearly well suited by a big-field scenario.

No win since the 2020 Portland at this fixture and the current season has been very up and down, with slow starts not helping on occasions; he is risky but also too well handicapped to ignore and his penultimate effort was very promising.

His only blip came in an always-hot 3yo 6f handicap at York in June; then won a 5f novice with a bit in hand before running well upped to 7f at Newmarket (winner progressive); 6f looks just the job for him and, although drawn in 1, there's plenty of pace close to him.
