Has fared better since handicapping, latterly when seeing off a subsequent winner off a 7lb lower mark on Polytrack three weeks ago; useful family tends to improve with age (brother to The Tin Man among others) and he's high on the shortlist.

Heavily backed on his nursery debut at Lingfield four weeks ago but he was disappointing in sixth, finishing behind a couple of today's rivals; better when tried in a tongue-tie here last week, keeping on for third having been tapped for speed in the straight; progress required to win.
