No win since January 2022 but a very solid sequence this season under Bradley Harris, with last six starts including four seconds; wore cheekpieces last three outings; stayed on well for a close third in the Warwick qualifier four weeks ago but he was no match for Goshhowposh on the run-in at Wincanton time before and a 2lb swing should not be enough to turn the tables.

Runner-up three times in a row this autumn and also ran creditably when upped to 2m7f/3m on last two outings, second again at Wincanton on latest; ridden in all those five races by Bradley Harris; wore cheekpieces last two; while needing respect for consistency, some improvement is needed for a first handicap win.
