Form & Verdict

Losing run is mounting up, but he is a dual winner over 1m here and was surrounded by subsequent winners when sixth of 11 at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) last month, running better than his finishing position would suggest; the extra furlong may suit him best, but a player nonetheless with blinkers given a go.

Can race freely but has responded well to blinkers, winning two of his three starts in this headgear (all on AW); up 7lb for the latest but that was quite decisive from off the pace and this could also be run to suit; 1m with cut underfoot is fine.
