Often pulls hard, including since the hood went on, and that cost him his chance on his AW comeback; fine on turf and is back on his last winning mark, so ought to fare better under Oisin Murphy (1-3 for the yard) if more amenable.

Triple AW scorer around 1m, including here; placed three times over 1m on turf last autumn; pulled too hard when below-form seventh at Chelmsford on final start in November; likely still speedy enough for 7f but peak fitness has to be taken on trust after five months off.

3yo who is on a competitive mark on his best Irish form and is one to watch in the betting now upped to 1m on his second start for this stable, but he's been below par the last twice and needs to get back on track.

Continues down the weights and perhaps the drop back in trip and the first-time cheekpieces will be positives; however, on this season's evidence others have more compelling claims; first run since July.

Form & Verdict

His form has been in and out this season but there have been plenty of good runs and he won at Thirsk (1m, good) last month; kept on well for third there (7f, good) two starts ago and this step back up in trip seems a likely positive; in the shake-up if he's on a going day.
