No problem with a stiff 6f and there have been several good runs since returning to AW last October; could prove better drawn today than has been the case of late and he's one to consider.

C&D winner winner who went close at Southwell in December and was a good third at Wolverhampton next time; however, his form has dipped with sixth-place finishes over C&D the last twice and he needs to raise his game.

Landed the 2019 Silver Cup over C&D and showed he still had it at the right level when winning twice last autumn, at Pontefract (6f, good) and Southwell (6f, AW); 1lb below his last winning mark, but hasn't built on an encouraging reappearance and others are preferred.

Last win came in the 2019 Redcar Two Year Old Trophy, some lengthy absences in the meantime; 251-day absence before fourth of 13 at Thirsk (6f, good to firm) this month, with Newyorkstateofmind second, and that was a good effort given he had no great record fresh; interesting.

Hat-trick over this trip on turf/AW in the spring, but ended up well beaten at Beverley (5f, good to firm) 13 days ago; had the widest stall in a big field there, so it's possible to excuse that effort and he can't be written off.

Recorded his fifth AW win when scoring at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) on his reappearance but he failed to back that up at Windsor 18 days ago; that took his turf record to 2-40 and he has something to prove again after that 11l defeat.
