3-3 in his first season last year, including two wins on slow ground; disappointing twice in the spring but bounced back in emphatic fashion at Doncaster (1m2f, good; tongue-tie applied) in September; only eighth when favourite for the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket (1m1f, good) but possible he'll resume his progression back on softer ground.

Both wins have come in small fields (including on soft) but was third of 15 in a good handicap at Epsom (extended 1m, good) at the Derby meeting when unlucky not to finish closer; reportedly unsuited by good to firm ground when finishing last in the Royal Hunt Cup; given a break since.

Soft-ground novice winner as 2yo and followed up in similar company at Leicester (1m2f, good to firm) on reappearance in April; last of six in the Dante at York three weeks later but returns from a break (been gelded) as an unexposed sort from a top yard going great guns; cheekpieces on for the first time; interesting, particularly if the market vibes are strong.

Different proposition since blinkered, winning Spring Cup at Newbury (1m, soft) in April and Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot (good) in June; showed he's also capable of smart performances outside handicaps when third in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot (good to soft) on latest start six weeks ago; should be thereabouts for a stable which continues in excellent form.

Different proposition since blinkered, winning Spring Cup at Newbury (1m, soft) in April and Royal Hunt Cup over the straight 1m at this course (good) last month; the RPR he achieved when winning here gives him a good chance but big-field races clearly suit and he does need to prove he can produce that level of performance faced with a different scenario.

Acts on soft and good to firm ground; took really well to first-time blinkers in the Spring Cup at Newbury, scoring readily, and subsequent flop seems to confirm that he's unsuited by the Newmarket Rowley Mile course; may still have more to offer in the blinds and he has Royal Ascot form having finished third in last year's Britannia; one to consider.

Won twice on going softer than good on France in autumn 2019; his best form in Britain has been achieved on AW (won at Newcastle and Wolverhampton last winter) and a watching brief is advised on return from a nine-month break.

Made just a fairly encouraging seasonal/stable debut in October but displayed big jolt of improvement to win easily by 13l here (2m3f, good) a fortnight ago; hiked up 13lb for that and has stamina to prove over new trip today but ought to handle the slower ground and commands respect.

Completed a 1m four-timer in late summer 2021; just as good when runner-up four times this season, although on the latest occasion at Sandown she did rather throw it away by hanging; caught too far back when down the field in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Kempton last time.

Better than ever for a C&D win (good to firm) in May, coming from the back; however, well below form at Sandown on both starts since, where she previously had a good record; won her only start on soft (2021) but remote on heavy last October; wore cheekpieces on six of last seven starts, now tries blinkers; a few doubts.
