Very patchy this year and ran poorly back from wind surgery recently, but did too much too soon over 7f that night; has two wins and a close second to his name in three runs over 6f on Tapeta and it wouldn't surprise to see him bounce back.

Record of 5-8 since dropped to 6f, three of the wins coming for today's rider Tommie Jakes; not at his best at Newcastle four weeks ago and the drop to 5f needs to spark another career best.
