Had two years on the sidelines and it took him a couple of runs to rediscover his spark; back in the groove now, following a good win at Southwell with a close second at Salisbury three weeks ago (both 6f); returning to 7f won't hurt and he's one to consider despite the rise in class.

Two 6f wins on soft/good for previous yard but form tailed off after the latest of them at Doncaster last July; wasn't in much form on AW over the winter but on a handy mark now and he ran better back on turf when third at Thirsk recently; hood worn last twice now discarded; good weights chance.

Scored twice over 7f on turf in June but his recent form is not so encouraging, only ninth in 7f Kempton handicap last month; more is required on his first go on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Below best on soft/good to soft on final two starts in 2022 and couldn't justify market support on recent AW return; however, he should come on for the run, he had C&D form as a 3yo and the way he finished to win on Kempton AW last June suggests this stiff finish will suit.
