Missed all of 2022 but it's done him no harm whatever, winning two of his first four AW starts, over 6f and 7f, before finding Lingfield's sharp 6f an inadequate test last month; return to turf no hardship, having won 5f maiden on grass as 2yo and is one to consider.

Second to Zip over C&D in January two starts ago and can't be ruled out; however, following his return to action at Newmarket in May he's now finished last in three of his last four races so his claims are hardly solid.

Better record on turf than AW so his second of six at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) early in the year has to be viewed positively in the circumstances; only 3lb higher than when making impressive winning reappearance at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm) last June; big player if ready to roll after five months off in a first-time tongue-strap.

Unable to threaten on turf on his last three starts but the AW is his thing nowadays and this two-time course winner is just 1lb higher than when going close at Chelmsford on his last AW handicap start; respected.

Finished third of 15 in the 2018 running; has had a stop-start year but testing conditions suit and he looked in good form when a ready winner from Hodler at Leicester 18 days ago (7f, soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained); back up 5lb; one of the more likely ones.

Below best the last twice but it was a hot handicap at Royal Ascot last week and the yard's horses are capable of swiftly bouncing back to form; won in good style over C&D in March on sole AW run and could go well.
