Effective on turf and AW; ties in closely with Chillingham on November Handicap running (finished eighth); more exposed than that rival but is on a workable mark, having been dropped 2lb, and ran well on sole 1m6f start; not dismissed.

Solid performer who got back to winning ways when leading towards the finish over 1m6f at Wolverhampton in November; had three subsequent winners behind him on that occasion (including the reopposing Zealandia) so still looks nicely handicapped off 2lb higher; respectable fifth at Ascot last summer on his previous attempt at 2m; key player.
