Heavy-ground maiden winner last autumn (6f); close second over C&D on his handicap debut in December but not quite so good in two further runs over the winter; down in grade for her return from a seven-month break; still has some potential.

Had a blip at Thirsk last month but generally reliable and was back on song with a creditable fourth of 12 at Newcastle (6f, AW) last time; this return to soft ground is no problem and his last run at 7f resulted in a strong-finishing second on Tapeta three runs back; shortlisted.

Got the better of the reopposing Caribbean Sunset at Ayr in July when the pair pulled well clear (6f, soft; weighted to confirm placings); good second back there last time when again in front of Caribbean Sunset; stays 7f but he has something to prove on AW.
