Pleasing debut when a close fifth at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) in June and ran in a hot race next time; not so easily forgiven is his latest remote third in a moderate 6f maiden at Chepstow, for all that the trip may have been on the sharp side; handicap debut.

Sole turf win came over C&D on good ground (softer could be problematic) back in 2017; better known for his AW exploits and he won his final race on that surface by 4l more than a year ago; goes well fresh but others are much safer.
