Has a few ideas of his own but he's blessed with stacks of raw ability and he hasn't always had the rub of the green since dead-heating with Summerghand at the Ebor meeting; only third behind Tacarib Bay in Listed company here in November but he was too keen early and didn't find as much as may have been expected once coming off the bridle; likely to be ridden more patiently this time and he's of serious interest.

Taken well to Tapeta, third in a Listed event over C&D in November before impressive wins over 6f and 5f here the last twice (both backed up by the clock); surged to the front over the shorter trip two weeks ago and a 5lb rise is fair enough; it would be a huge effort to defy top weight but he threatened to be top class as a 2yo and he couldn't be coming here in better form.

Looked one to follow when scything through the pack to win a C&D handicap in July; things didn't go his way on a few occasions afterwards and he showed his true colours when ridden more positively at Chelmsford in October, rewarding good market support in comfortable fashion; that effort backed up by the clock and there could still be mileage in his mark.
