Close second of six at Sandown (1m2f, soft; 1lb higher today) last July on handicap debut; not quite so good on either run since, admittedly with seven months off (had wind surgery) in between but she was favourite for AW race last month on latest; after just six races, she could have more to give.

Promise on AW on last two starts, looking better than the bare results; thrown in judged on two AW runs last March/April and he is probably ready for this step back up in trip, with more to prove on today's surface given he tailed off in a soft-ground race last April but that preceded an eight-month absence; cheekpieces (tried once, ran okay) return and he's tongue tied for the first time; not dismissed.

Held up and sometimes slowly away, as on latest start; five AW wins (one over this far) and registered his first turf success at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) last month, going away at the finish; easily his best other turf start was two weeks ago when creditable, staying-on fourth at Bath (1m2f, heavy); 1m4f away from testing ground would give him more to prove but he's highly respected as a strikingly in-form candidate.
