Won off 2lb higher at Beverley (8.4f, soft) last summer but he's not matched that form since and has been well held in his three runs this winter; now drops back into a Class 5 event but he needs a hood to give him a boost on his drop back in trip.

Built upon this season's first two runs when runner-up off this mark over C&D (good to firm) three weeks ago, albeit beaten 3l; has plenty of good course form and she could be in the mix.

Best form on soft/heavy, notably a success in the Spring Mile at Doncaster (Thunder Roar second) on reappearance; only midfield in the Spring Cup at Newbury next time but better when fourth at Leicester (1m, soft) last weekend, with old rival Thunder Roar a place ahead of him on that occasion.

Runner-up at Pontefract (1m, good) in May and bounced back from soft-ground flop at Nottingham with good third of six at Carlisle (1m, good to firm); can be thereabouts if conditions are in his favour.
