Made it 5-9 on AW when scoring at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) last July but he was laboured back there on his return in December; now drops back into a Class 4 event but he has bit to prove after another break and others are more persuasive.

Low-mileage 5yo who made it five AW wins on the spin when going in over C&D in July; off since but he has won off a break so merits serious consideration despite having a career-high mark to overcome.

Has run consistently well on the AW since this time last year (record 21313) with his two wins coming at Southwell (1m6f, Tapeta); has attempted this sort of trip only once before when second of six on turf at Lingfield last summer; shouldn't be far away.

2-2 over C&D, the latest win (beat Smokey Malone) on April Fools' Day when having first Flat start since 2020; ties in closely with Cedar Cage on 2m form here three weeks ago; strong chance back at 1m6f.
