Couple of notable 7f wins early in career but raced mainly at 1m since; successful three times this term and ran respectably in the Joel Stakes here most recently; not crying out for this drop back in trip; below-par third in this race two years ago.

Form & Verdict

Five races, all on softer than good; gelded after disappointing in the Greenham at Newbury on reappearance; ran twice over 1m at Goodwood last month and showed improved form when close second of seven in Group 2 last time; carried his head a bit awkwardly and hung that day, which sees him in cheekpieces this time, but he should go well.

Won the Horris Hill at Newbury on heavy as a 2yo and underlined his liking for testing turf when second in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood (Charyn over 1l back in third) and a Sandown Listed race (wore first-time cheekpieces) at the end of last summer; ran poorly in 1m1f Newmarket Group 3 when last seen in October but a bold show is assured if back to anywhere near his best in a first-time visor.

Running well in defeat at Listed and Group 3 level this season over 1m-1m2f on good and softer; not far away on that but he has a bit more to prove in the blinkers (tried three starts back, well held at Royal Ascot) than recent cheekpieces.

Refused to race on his first two outings but things have improved markedly since, and a fifth of eight in a Listed race at Sandown (1m, soft) last time was another step in the right direction; has form over 1m2f so this intermediate trip should be fine, but he has something to find with both Knight and Raadobarg on a strict interpretation of the Sandown form.

Peak form came in winning a soft-ground French 1m Group 2 last summer; respectable in Listed/Group races this term; entitled to run better last time at Sandown when back on soft ground and the tongue-tie tried there is replaced by blinkers, which didn't do wonders for her when tried once in Australia (Group 1 admittedly); can be keen, so the assured strong gallop should at least help.

Finest hour came when winning a Group 2 over the extended 1m2f at York (good to firm) last summer but he does have plenty of good form around 1m, including on soft; absent since a respectable tenth of 14 in the Group 1 Dubai Turf at Meydan in March but he has a reasonable record when fresh and he's the form pick.
