Began 2023 with a pair of AW wins, notably the Lincoln Trial at Wolverhampton (RPR 106); also ran a fine race at Newcastle in June (1m) and this month's fifth in a 1m Listed race at Kempton was another fair effort; stamina for today's trip not assured but he won't be far away if it sparks anything extra from him.

Won a big-field C&D handicap last Easter and he was better than ever when winning at Chelmsford (1m) in December; unsuited by a tactical event over 1m here last month but still ran creditably; returning to the longer trip won't hurt and he is more appealing than many.

Just one win to his name but he regularly ran to an RPR in the 80s through the winter and his penultimate start at Ripon (1m, soft) wasn't bad in the context of this race; disconcerting to see him dropped to this grade but no surprise were he to prove too classy.
