Two wins this year, the latest at Musselburgh (1m, good to firm) in June; twice held since, but back off his winning mark and pedigree offers encouragement for the step up in trip; can't be ruled out.

Improved his record to 6-27 when scoring off 1lb lower over C&D (good to firm) last month; was never better than mid-division at Ayr last time but that was against a pace bias and he should get a better tow into this race; not ruled out back at this track.
