Has done well since switched to the AW (form 1323) and he did much the best of those who tried to come from off the pace when beaten half a length into third of nine at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) a week ago; races off the same mark and high on the list provided the sharper test doesn't find him out.
