Front-runs; unbeaten in five handicaps at 6f and 7f, on good to firm and good; winning margin has shrunk each time but he just hung on to his Rowley course superiority over Washington Heights at York last month, where Mill Stream and Eminency were hot on their heels; some cat and mouse will be involved from an adjacent stall to Washington Heights and it's hard to split them but he's again a major player.

Won a novice here (6f) a year ago and twice successful on turf (6f/7f) this year, but never got a run when in rear at Ascot (6f, good) last month; may yet be capable of more back on the AW and could play a part provided the outside stall isn't too much of a problem;

Came on plenty over the winter and impressed with the way he went past the opposition in a 6f Salisbury maiden on reappearance (good to firm; plenty of winners have come out of the race); a subsequent Windsor success came in a relatively ordinary race for handicap debut but this more taxing finish can see his stamina come into play; has improvement in him.

Won 6f novice (good) and Listed event (good to soft; in cheekpieces) as 2yo but was never on an even keel when first-time blinkers were added to tongue-tie on AW in March; the return to a straightforward turf track might help but performance could go either way with aids discarded.
