Much better on Tapeta last time and is 5lb lower tonight but his two previous efforts on turf (both on good/faster) were poor; half-brother Kaleidoscopic won on soft, though, which gives a bit of hope.

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.

Ex-Irish maiden who started short prices for two runs on Tapeta for his new yard early in the year; hung both ways when turned over at odds-on latterly (6f) and has stamina to prove round here under a big weight.

Made a successful stable debut after five months off here (7f) in February, but has been a beaten favourite in all three outings since; won over 1m in Ireland, so the return to this trip is not a problem, and he won when blinkered for the first time, so interesting to see if the application of cheekpieces has a similar effect.
