Lightly raced 3yo going the right way; went close on handicap debut over 7f at Wolverhampton and he was strong through the line to go one better on the drop back to 6f at Salisbury (good); up 6lb for that but can maintain his progress.

Three wins over 6f/7f on turf this year but he didn't appear to get home when fifth of ten at Windsor (1m, good to firm) last time; has run well on Tapeta and the return to this trip should suit on Polytrack debut after a short break, but he is drawn wider than ideal.

Off the mark at the sixth attempt when justifying favouritism at Brighton (7f) last May; hasn't kicked on from that in just two runs since but he shaped as though he needed the run when a creditable third at Kempton in December; now goes back up in grade but he's still unexposed on AW and could have more to offer in handicaps.

First couple of runs last season were mildly encouraging with a view to handicaps and perhaps the AW wasn't for him when quiet the final time; by a top sprinter but there's stamina in the pedigree, so he's of interest raised in trip.
