3yo who won at Catterick (1m4f, good to soft) and Nottingham (2m, good) during the summer but he was disappointing in the Cesarewitch Trial at Newmarket (2m2f, good) last month; still has potential as a stayer but he was in trouble some way out last time and needs to bounce back after that.

Second in his first two handicaps (1m4f/1m6f) before making the most of a straightforward opening in a 1m4f Catterick maiden; up to 2m when adding a 13-runner handicap at Nottingham on latest start, getting to the lead late on after not an ideal run through; up 5lb but looks capable of better.

Easy winner of a Down Royal maiden (1m2f, yielding) for Joseph O'Brien last summer and he's 2-5 over hurdles for this yard since, including a win at Taunton (2m, soft) when last seen in March; still has potential under both codes and he's respected back in this sphere on his handicap debut.

Sole win from eight starts was in a small-field classified event (1m2f, good) in July but he's unexposed at staying trips and didn't get any luck when fifth of ten at Chester (1m6f, good to soft) last time; that was promising and he looks interesting off 1lb lower here.

Beat three rivals on handicap debut at Nottingham (1m2f, good in July) and was noted staying on when fourth of 13 at Newbury (1m4f, good to soft) four weeks ago (runner-up has won since); worth a go over this far, even though not really bred to get it.

Soft ground might have been against him on third start (unraced on good to soft); improved to win a four-runner classified at Nottingham (1m2f, good) in July in clearcut style despite blowing the start; favourite when fair fourth of seven at Newmarket (1m2f, good) on handicap debut, rallying but with Lion Kingdom moving past him; probably vulnerable.
