0-9 for Sir Michael Stoute and tailed off at Newmarket (40-1) in October on stable debut; interesting on plenty of turf form but sole AW race was debut when well beaten; others are more persuasive.

All three wins have been on Wolverhampton AW and his two seconds on turf were in 2021; while 2023 turf campaign rather petered out, he was third in a soft-ground race last April and has plenty of AW performances in the last six months to recommend him as an each-way prospect.

Swept clear from the rear of the field to open his account at Doncaster (1m) in June; first sight of anything similar since was on latest start when fourth of 11 over 8.6f here, having to weave his way through from the back and never nearer; that was encouraging but there are lesser efforts to consider as well and he'll always need some luck with those tactics.
