Seen twice as often on the AW but had an impressive win on good to firm last August; does not always fire, for instance in AW Championships race at Newcastle on latest outing, but he looks good on his day and the ease of his 2m win on Kempton AW in February can't be forgotten (6lb higher today); this unusual test might just take his fancy.
