Hooded this season but not today; markedly slow starts on most outings (won two) but rather better in that respect last time, when looking better than the bare result as he did not get the best of runs through; never quite got competitive on last three outings now (on soft ground penultimate start) and drops back from 2m/1m6f but could be capable of better.
