It's not all been plain sailing in his nine-race career but he's 2-2 at Wolverhampton, latterly in 1m4f handicap at turn of the year (Night At Sea keeping on in fifth); that display suggested he'd stay further, which he failed to prove over 2m at Lingfield two weeks ago but he ran respectably and looks a leading candidate back at this track.
