All five races at 7f, the first four on soft and heavy, but good ground made no difference to him when runner-up to an improved one at Newmarket nine days ago (hood discarded); beaten favourite on last four starts but the drop to 6f is well worth a go.

Well-beaten fifth in first two handicaps in May/June (1m2f, good) and returns from a break with something to prove, but he's been gelded since and that may help this lightly raced 3yo tap back into his earlier promise (including on soft/heavy ground); interesting contender.

Heavy-ground winner as 2yo; didn't have a great 3yo season but he took advantage of weights drop when winning at Chelmsford last month (1m2f) in a first-time hood; fair third over 1m4f since but perhaps the return to 1m2f back on turf will suit with refitted tongue-tie added.
