Dropping back to 5f has been the making of him and he followed two good seconds with a narrow C&D win 18 days ago; different tactics were deployed on that occasion (missed the break) and the effort can be upgraded quite significantly as he circled the field and his penultimate furlong was impressive; this will demand more of him but a 4lb rise still leaves him attractively weighted.
