Comes alive at Ascot, successful in two Wokinghams as well as the Group 3 Bengough Stakes at this meeting in 2022; below par so far this year but his mark has fallen and he wasn't beaten far when seventh in the Ayr Gold Cup two weeks ago; high on the list returned to a course he loves.

Has been a real money-spinner for this yard, winning two Wokinghams as well as three Group races; made a slow start to last season but he came good in the autumn, justifying strong support in a 16-runner handicap at his beloved Ascot in October; chance on that form but back from a break perhaps not the time to catch him.
