Bit to prove on softish ground but he won well over C&D in July and then bumped into a sharp improver (since completed a four-timer) over 1m6f at Salisbury; only 2lb higher for this and, if handling the ground, should go very close, at the least.

Well suited by the step up to 1m3f on handicap debut when going close against a subsequent winner at Yarmouth and he wasn't too hard pressed to get off the mark at Pontefract in July (1m4f; both on good to firm); up 5lb but dam has bred two who won at 1m6f+ and he looks a good candidate for this longer trip.

1-24, the win coming over 1m2f on turf in 2022; fitting blinkers backfired big time at Kempton three weeks ago but he wasn't pulling up any trees in the hood prior to that (including two attempts at hurdling); has been running over further.

First-time cheekpieces seemed to help when fourth of 11 over 1m4f here last month but upping him to 2m wasn't the answer next time and he didn't do enough over C&D since to think this is his trip either; work to do.
