Back to form in these cheekpieces last autumn, easily winning Leicester seller (7f, soft) before close second in competitive Newmarket handicap (1m, heavy), which could be upgraded as he came from further back than the other principals; perhaps unsuited by Tapeta when last seen; reappears with yard among winners (over jumps) and with conditions to suit; could go well.
