Won four times (two here) for John Butler before heading to Ireland; raced over an inadequate 5f in two runs for Ian Williams of late but he's never gone as far as 1m on the Flat and hasn't shown much for a while.

All wins on Polytrack, the most recent over C&D in February (3-8 at Kempton); shaped better than bare result on Newcastle Tapeta (7f) last time; well handicapped on peak form and unexposed at 1m; shortlisted.

Won when upped in trip at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) 11 days ago and close second at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) on Thursday; a third quick run in a row and a first taste of Tapeta are the question marks today, but he's a key player if his good form continues.
