Sole win over 1m2f at Ayr (good) as 4yo and, after missing 2023, he hasn't approached his best form at about 1m on the AW this year; well below best in one previous run on soft so there is that to think about, too.

All four wins have come over 1m2f/1m4f around here, the latest from 2lb lower in November; finished behind three of these when fourth of nine over C&D in January, but appeared to be undone by a lack of pace there; capable of playing a part if this pans out more in her favour back from a 51-day break.
