Pretty consistent in defeat last year (over a wide variety of distances) except at the start and finish of that campaign; thereabouts if he can resume in good form this time, as he did in 2022, but career record is dominated by what he's done at Carlisle.

Bounded clear over C&D to exploit a career-low mark (8lb lower) last month; while that effort has been handsomely advertised by the runner-up Big Narstie, she herself fluffed her lines when a beaten favourite at Newcastle (7f); a tongue-tie is now added.

Three seconds at two, including one on heavy; gelded and has worn a variety of headgear this season; gave his most positive display of 2023 when a close fourth of five at Beverley (1m2f, heavy) recently and not disgraced when he got going much too late at Newmarket (good) five days later, but others have more pressing claims.
