Kept on for encouraging fourth at Newcastle (7f, AW) in February and won a classified there last month on his first crack at 1m; this unexposed 4yo hinted at promise on soft ground here last April and could have more to offer at this trip now back in a handicap and back on turf.

Down the field on final four runs last autumn and this 9yo returns with something to prove; however, he was a good fourth in this last year (soft) and is well treated on form as recent as last September; trainer's horses are running well and he's an interesting contender.

Following a long absence he was well beaten on two hurdle starts this January; however, he didn't run badly when midfield back on the Flat at Pontefract (1m, soft) a fortnight ago and could build on that now up in trip and back on better ground, having shown promise when staying on nicely over 7f/1m on good/good to firm in 2021; interesting for last year's winning yard.
