Tends to race freely but has been running well over 6f; however, return to this trip from widest draw means he may need a further jump forward if he's to notch his second win.

Completed a remarkable six-timer in 1m/1m2f handicaps (heavy-good to soft) this year but her winning run came to a grinding halt when stepped up to Listed level at York (extended 1m2f, good to soft) in July; freshened up since and no surprise were she to resume her progression this autumn.

Shaped better on his handicap debut, following wind surgery, here in February, especially as his saddle slipped; didn't build on that last time, but things didn't fall his way and it's too soon to write him off for a trainer in good form.
