Different proposition since blinkered, winning Spring Cup at Newbury (1m, soft) in April and Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot (good) in June; showed he's also capable of smart performances outside handicaps when third in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot (good to soft) on latest start six weeks ago; should be thereabouts for a stable which continues in excellent form.

Different proposition since blinkered, winning Spring Cup at Newbury (1m, soft) in April and Royal Hunt Cup over the straight 1m at this course (good) last month; the RPR he achieved when winning here gives him a good chance but big-field races clearly suit and he does need to prove he can produce that level of performance faced with a different scenario.

Acts on soft and good to firm ground; took really well to first-time blinkers in the Spring Cup at Newbury, scoring readily, and subsequent flop seems to confirm that he's unsuited by the Newmarket Rowley Mile course; may still have more to offer in the blinds and he has Royal Ascot form having finished third in last year's Britannia; one to consider.

Impressed with the way he overcame a troubled passage in the Irish Lincoln at the Curragh (1m, soft to heavy) four weeks ago, finishing strongly to get up on the line; that notable success took his career record to 3-5; looks the type to improve further; strongly respected with 5lb rise looking surmountable.
