Latest win when tongue-tie was first fitted at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) in July but it's been hard work for him in major 1m and 1m1f handicaps since; cheekpieces replace tongue-tie; up against it.

Won four times last year and he was back on the scoresheet at Hamilton in July; finished third at York next time but he's been unplaced the last twice and looks vulnerable in this red-hot handicap.

Course winner in May who found plenty when forging clear at Windsor four weeks ago (both wins at 1m on good); stamina will stand him in good stead back over a bare 7f for the first time in nearly three years but rarely asked to race on ground slower than good to soft.

J: Jamie Spencer

Won off 2lb lower on the other course here (1m, good) in May; has been pretty consistent in five runs since but this is a big step back up in grade and he needs to find more to get back on the scoresheet.

Has improved for cheekpieces, winning at Redcar in April (1m, soft) and Sandown last time (1m, good to firm) but not sure to confirm those Sandown placings with third-placed Eilean Dubh.

Form & Verdict

Not particularly consistent and was allowed an easy lead when winning at Epsom two runs back (8.5f, good to firm); not so good last time but would have a chance if allowed his own way up front again.

Generally disappointing since bagging a good prize here (8.5f, good to firm) on Oaks day in June but is 1lb below that mark now and took good step back in right direction when fourth at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) ten days ago; can't be ruled out.
