Form & Verdict

Classy pedigree; awkwardly placed throughout and failed to do himself justice from a high draw at Kempton two starts ago but he won 7f handicaps either side of that, coming wide and off the pace to nail it close home here 11 days ago; up just 1lb and he should cope well with 1m.

Made it three wins from six starts when scoring at Kempton (7f) in December but he was disappointing behind Hieronymus there last month; still has potential and all three wins have been on Polytrack but he needs to bounce back after that last run.

Eight of his nine wins have come here, including this race off 1lb higher three years ago; losing run up to 13 and has failed to beat a rival in his last two starts, though he endured a wide trip latest; a long time since he raced down at this level so he could go well.

Close up at Kempton and here before finishing a closing fifth again here 19 days ago when behind Arctician and Sandy Paradise; has been below his best in two previous attempts at 1m but he's usually running on over 7f and he should get a strong pace to chase which suits.

Two 7f AW wins for David Loughnane last year; eye-catching effort at Kempton 18 days ago, held up out the back (raced freely) and poorly positioned before finishing with a flourish; up 2lb for that but this is weaker and he's still well treated on last year's form; major player.

Handy sort who has gained three of his four wins here, the latest over this trip in June; runner-up off this mark back here (1m) three weeks later and goes well for Ethan Jones, but likely to need this first start in 168 days and has the outside stall.
