Didn't fire at Brighton three weeks ago but was placed off 3lb higher on consecutive turf starts last month (1m2f/11.6f) and will be suited by the return to this C&D; can't be ruled out.

Placed a few times on Polytrack but all four AW wins have come on Tapeta, the latest at Wolverhampton (1m4f) last September; still 2lb higher despite six defeats since and jockey bookings suggest he may be the stable second-string.

Form & Verdict

Not beaten far on any of three starts for new stable this year, most recently when sixth of 14 at Sandown (1m2f, good; refitted cheekpieces) in July; drops in grade here and will also be suited by this trip-and-surface combination; high on the list.
