Safely held in two 6f Thirsk handicaps this month but he surged back to form to win this race in refitted blinkers in 2023 (good to soft) and followed up off mark 9lb higher than today's at Nottingham (6f, heavy); has the headgear back on today; interesting.

Last two wins have been on soft ground so she could have done with it a bit deeper when fourth to Teruntum Star on good to soft here two weeks ago; it might be a similar tale today and stall 16 is therefore not ideal.
