Comfortably beat Fidelio Vallis here (2m, good to soft) two months ago, taking Musselburgh form figures to 1221 and overall chase record to 7-33; went very close off 4lb higher in this contest in 2020; holds solid claims despite his advancing years (has just turned 11).

Form & Verdict

Front-runner; his winning run came to an end when just behind Admiral's Sunset here last month before producing a rare poor effort at Aintree; even if back on song he looks on a tough mark now.

Likes it here and returned to winning ways in a 2m3f handicap confined to mares in May; didn't get the clearest of runs over C&D a month ago and yet rallied gamely to go down narrowly; chance off the same mark.
