Won Group 3 in France as 2yo, also a close second in Group 1 (both at 1m; good to soft and very soft); couldn't raise his game further in a light 3yo season but returned with 1m1f conditions win on AW in March; needs to show he's worth his current mark on British debut now back up to 1m2f.

Tight with Lord Protector on 1m2f Sandown form (good) where he did well to get as close as he did; ridden more prominently and gave another cracking display when third to Pride Of America in a top York handicap since (about 1m2f, good to soft); up 2lb but a solid contender back at a bare 1m2f.

His form went through the roof when upped to 1m2f in handicaps last year and unbeaten in four attempts (on good to firm and good); the manner of the latest of them suggested more to come this year and although he couldn't quite peg back an improved winner at Yarmouth last week (good to soft) he did his utmost; bang there if coping with the quick return.

Classy form when a strong-finishing third in 2021 French Derby (about 1m2f, soft) despite a troubled run; in the light of that his career has not been a success but some glimmers for new yard, on AW in November and when keeping on pleasingly from well back in a top York handicap recently (1m2f, good to soft; widest draw); can deliver more off his current mark.
