Patchy form in 11 starts since winning over C&D in March 2022, though he has gone close a couple of times back here in the meantime as when beaten a nose and a neck into third of seven 11 days ago; each-way claims from the same mark if reproducing that performance.

Off the track for 381 days prior to his return in October and he's run two good races and two lesser ones since reappearing; the two good efforts have both come at this track, latterly over 1m 25 days ago; looks a key player back at 7f with Rossa Ryan retaining the ride.
