One of the main form contenders, having finished third in maidens at Newmarket (1m) and Sandown (1m2f), one place behind very useful stablemate Middle Earth last time; returns from another break, so market support would be encouraging.

Beaten favourite the last twice (AW/turf) and is in danger of becoming a frustrating/disappointing sort; however, holds leading claims if back to his Yarmouth reappearance form (second to smart rival); fitting of tongue-tie may help.

Struggled in sole 2yo run but he showed plenty of promise with his second at Yarmouth (1m, good) and third at Chelmsford (1m, AW) in May; that latest form has been boosted by the first two since and he still has untapped potential; respected.
