Winless since his 2yo debut and has been costly to follow this summer; is more than capable at this level but, while he can pull hard, he stays further and this trip is a minimum down from 1m6f.

Maiden; some late work behind a wide-margin winner at Kempton (1m3f) in September and perhaps his one-paced eighth over 1m4f at Wolverhampton next time was down more to having gone off the boil than a lack of stamina; left Tony Carroll since; still time for him to do better.
