Better than ever at the age of six and he arrives on a hat-trick after 7f wins at Doncaster and Newmarket this summer; now figures on a career-high mark but he's a player once more.

Tough handicapper who ran a fine race when third in the Ayr Gold Cup on his first crack at 6f; third, beaten over 3l, off this mark at York four weeks ago (6f, soft) but that only tells half the story as he trounced the other runners on the stands' side and was also comfortably best of those to race up with the pace; still capable of better at this trip and he's a much better horse now than when last seen on AW (when he appeared to handle Tapeta well enough); deserves a good prize.
