Gets away with this trip but it's easy to argue 7f suits ideally; pulled hard on heavy ground last time and is better than that but he'd been turned over as favourite three times on the spin previously and there's little room for manoeuvre off this mark.

Improving in handicaps in the autumn, notably when a 1l second to an improver over C&D in November (heavy ground; pair 9l clear); 3lb rise may underestimate him; major player.

Struggled on his three 2yo starts (6f/7f) and beaten 6l when fifth of eight on recent handicap debut at Redcar (1m, soft), but he could improve for that reappearance outing and the dam's side of his pedigree indicates this step up in trip will be a plus; not ruled out in first-time blinkers.

Offered some hope on his third start (7f, Tapeta) but well beaten on last month's handicap debut back at Newcastle; step up to 1m, switch to turf and addition of a visor are possible sources of improvement but such progress is a must if he's to feature.

Showed some promise on his first two runs at two (good ground) before a lesser run on soft in September; gelded over the winter; looks a likely improver now handicapping but the ground is an unknown (half-sister Sandrine won the Albany on heavy which offers hope).

7f wins at Redcar and Wolverhampton this summer and he's only 2lb higher than for the latter win today; not at his best at Thirsk six weeks ago, however, and likely to need a good pace to aim at now reverting to 6f
