May have needed his recent comeback following a light campaign last year, but he looked to have no excuses, having been allowed to set a steady pace; needs a deal more on his Tapeta debut.

Was having his second start back from a 188-day absence when making most at a steady pace and just holding on under Archie Young over C&D last month; may not enjoy the same luxury this time, but is at least proven in the conditions and a player from 2lb higher.

Both wins this year were over 1m5f but he stayed on well to go close over 1m6f here (soft) in May and has also produced some stout finishing efforts over 2m; going down by just under 4l here two weeks ago was a belting run seeing as it came in the 1m1f Cambridgeshire; 7lb claimer recruited and they can go a lot better than big odds suggest.

Won first time out as a 3yo and has run well on comeback the past two seasons, so has that in his favour on his AW debut; was generally consistent last year, often in headgear, but holds no secrets from the handicapper.
