Sole success in 18 starts (including three points) came at Kelso (2m6f, good) last April; fair third of eight here (2m4f, soft) last month and is back off his winning mark, but he still has stamina to prove and may prefer better ground.

Arguably shaped with more promise than eventual 35l defeat suggests at Kelso (2m5f, soft) last month, after a break, but his win over that C&D last spring was recorded on good ground, and he'd appeal more on a quicker surface.
