0-8; has raised his game since the hood was removed and the way he finished over 7f last time suggests 1m should suit; considered.

Now 0-9 but looked unlucky on his reappearance and he was a clear second when made favourite at Newcastle (1m); the 66-1 winner last time has since proved that was no fluke by finishing second; solid chance.

0-6 but not far away in his first two nurseries (1m turf; 1m2f Tapeta) and heavy ground was probably to blame for modest effort on latest start; lacks a recent run but can win races off this mark.
