All of his nine wins have come on turf but he's held his form since his last success at Ayr (1m2f) in September and has run well here (1m2f/7f) in last two starts; this big step back up in trip is a positive and he shouldn't be far away.

Three wins at Ayr (1m-1m2f) this year and arrives on the back of some creditable placed efforts, the latest over 1m2f here; all 50 career starts over 1m+ so the unknown is whether he'll be fully effective over this shorter distance.

Won twice on heavy ground (once over C&D) in the autumn and bumped into a big improver when well-held second at Thirsk (1m4f, heavy) three weeks ago; evidently in good nick but may not be seen to quite the same effect on this less testing ground; tongue-tie added.
