Clicked since gelded and fitted with cheekpieces over C&D, losing out on the nod to Okami (went on to pip Saturnalia next time) before off the mark in good style last time; a 7lb rise will make life tougher into better company but he's lightly raced.

Raced only on ground softer than good; made all at Ffos Las (6f) last August but that was only a weak maiden; failed to beat a rival on handicap/seasonal debut (eased once held) and is not a solid option.
