Won twice at Nottingham (6f, good to firm) last August and ran well in defeat in the autumn; met plenty of trouble on his return from six months off when behind Bay Breeze and Showtime Mahomes at Ripon (6f, soft) 16 days ago; still 4lb above his last winning mark, but could figure granted a clearer run.

Had dropped back to his last winning mark when gaining his third course success under a prominent ride at Ripon (6f, soft) 16 days ago (three of these behind); 4lb higher, but there isn't much guaranteed pace amongst the others drawn high so he could go well; has won on good; stable also runs Golden Apollo.

Won this race 12 months ago off a 4lb lower mark, switched to the far side and making most of the running; added another two wins later in the summer but his form dipped in the autumn, albeit in some warm races; hasn't had the benefit of a run this year but won fresh in 2022 and he'll have the option to make a beeline for the far rail from stall 1; wouldn't read too much into his two defeats on heavy ground (late in the year and over 7f); claims.

Not shown much on the AW since December, but is 0-10 on artificial surfaces and 3-11 on turf; 8lb lower than when making a successful return from an absence at Haydock (6f, good to soft) last summer so has possibilities, especially if taking to the first-time cheekpieces.

Sent off favourite when defying a 198-day absence over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago (third has won since); still unexposed for a 5yo so a 4lb higher mark not insurmountable and his chances would be enhanced were the rain to arrive.

Not as good as he was, but three wins last year showed he still had what it takes at the right level; returns from six months off and all eight career wins have come when returned to the track after 19 days or less, so not hard to have reservations.
