Ridden with more restraint than sometimes the case when snapping a losing run over C&D three weeks ago, scoring by 2l from the reopposing Virtual Hug, who won here on Tuesday; a 4lb rise won't prevent another prominent showing if in similar form.

Sole win in 25 races was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; this season's first two starts for new yard were his best efforts for a while, but his placings behind runaway winners at Sandown on last two outings do not read so well; not proven beyond 2m1f and unraced over this far; acts on soft.
