On a good mark on last season's best and he made an encouraging seasonal return in a competitive sprint at Newmarket on 2,000 Guineas day; cheekpieces now join his usual hood; James Doyle booked and one of the likelier ones.

Only 1lb higher than for Haydock win last June (6f, good to firm; cheekpieces first time); shaped quite nicely on his return at Newmarket, held up in a race in which little landed a blow from the back; won second time out last year and, after two starts without them, the cheekpieces are back on today (hooded latest); capable of a big run with drying ground in his favour.

Runner-up in this race in 2021 and a good fourth last year when the ground would have been softer than ideal for him; as good as ever when winning at Haydock in June (6f, good to firm; wore cheekpieces which are absent today); this race will have been on the radar for some time but Tuesday's rain won't have helped.

Has drawn a blank this season but he retains a good chunk of ability, running well at Haydock in June off a 5lb higher mark and beaten under 4l in a hot York sprint latest; capable of a big run but slow starts have been a feature the last twice and that sounds a note of caution.

He has been prolific down the years and showed clear signs his turn was near when third at Epsom last week (6f, good to firm), beaten by two rivals who were much more patiently ridden and nicely clear of the fourth; 2-3 over C&D (the defeat on unsuitable ground) and a high draw was hugely advantageous at the Temple Stakes meeting here two weeks ago; solid candidate.

Looked to be going places as a sprinter when sauntering to the front and running on strongly in the corresponding race 12 months ago; hasn't added to that success though and he has taken backward steps twice since a promising return to action at Kempton in April; draw could be beneficial and the addition of cheekpieces is another possible source of improvement.

Impressed when landing a gamble at Lingfield (7f, AW) on his stable debut in January; expensive to follow since but he still has potential and last week's close third at Epsom (extended 1m; good to firm), when tried in this headgear for the first time, was a rock-solid effort; it didn't point to him necessarily wanting this drop to 6f but Ryan Moore is back on board and he can't be ignored.
