Ran with plenty of credit when fourth of nine at York (1m2f, good to firm) a fortnight ago, but all three wins have come over this trip, the latest at Newcastle (AW; first-time cheekpieces) in March; may find a few too good in the returning cheekpieces.

Looked to have lost his way, but bounced back with a success at Haydock (7f, good to firm) last month; confirmed his resurgence when second of seven at Leicester (7f, good to firm) 12 days later and shaped then as though well worth a go over this extra furlong; shortlisted.

Gentle progression in his first three starts, but pulled too hard in the first-time blinkers when sixth of nine on handicap debut at Sandown (7f, good) a fortnight ago; will need to settle better in them over this extra furlong but a player if he can, especially as he is bred to be much better than he has shown so far.

Had dropped 15lb lower than when winning at Redcar (1m, good to firm) last summer when beaten a nose here (7f, good to firm) 12 days ago; due to go up 3lb for that, but he couldn't take advantage of the same mark at Haydock (1m, good) six days later which leaves him with a bit to prove.

All three wins have been on Wolverhampton AW and his two seconds on turf were in 2021; while 2023 turf campaign rather petered out, he was third in a soft-ground race last April and has plenty of AW performances in the last six months to recommend him as an each-way prospect.

Some ability in three starts for Joseph O'Brien last year, but having been gelded and with the tongue-tie removed he finished a long last of seven on stable/handicap debut at Haydock (1m, good to firm) 15 days ago; hood now given a go, but big improvement is required.

Three wins last year, the latest in the legends race over the straight 1m here (good) last September; after some ordinary efforts he performed much better when third of 11 at Thirsk (1m, good to firm) this month and a couple of winners have come out of that race; much respected off the same mark.
