Yet to win a turf handicap but he nipped through quite takingly to win over 7f on Newcastle AW in August; no obvious excuse for defeat there next time but his second at Thirsk since was respectable considering soft ground wouldn't have been ideal; respected on best form.

Last two wins for Julie Camacho came over 7f on Tapeta including here; still 2lb below his last winning mark and didn't shape badly on stable debut after four months off at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) ten days ago, but more will be needed if he is to win this.

The vast majority of his races over 6f but he did win over 7f in 2020 and kept on steadily into third over C&D (good) before a respectable fourth over 6f at Ripon on Saturday; can give a good account.
