Maiden; has run well at about 7f (turf) and 1m (Polytrack) for new yard of late but lacked the pace to challenge over a bare 7f at Chelmsford recently; acts on Tapeta elsewhere and return to 1m should help; first-time hood added to refitted blinkers; thereabouts.

0-16 overall but still early days for him with his shrewd new yard; over 4l ahead of the stumbling Coral Reef at Ffos Las last month, and his Lingfield third since (1m) was an equal best form effort on synthetics.

Performed with credit when in the frame three times (1m/9.5f) in January/February and he presumably failed to stay when a remote last of four over 1m4f at Southwell last week; this test is more suitable; first-time visor replaces eyeshield/blinkers combination he's worn lately.

Best form since his debut effort when 2l third at Beverley latest (good to soft); that slowly run affair wouldn't be reliable evidence he stays 1m2f, however, and there's 2f further still to go tonight.
