Seven-race maiden but he's knocking at the door, finding no extra after looking like winning when second of five at Nottingham (1m, soft) on reappearance; dropping back to 7f may suit and he handles quick ground perfectly well; major player.

Has improved since being gelded, emphatically winning fast-ground handicaps at York (7f) and Nottingham (extended 1m) at the start of the summer; it was always going to be a tough ask trying to lead all the way in the Britannia at Royal Ascot last week and he should fare better here if he can get across from the outside stall.
