Trainer John Gosden reported the unbeaten Greenham Stakes winner to have pleased in a spin at the beginning of the week.

While the Newmarket handler would appreciate some rain for the Khalid Abdullah-owned colt, he hopes it will not be too testing.

Speaking from a rain-soaked Sandown, Gosden said: "He worked nicely earlier in the week and we'll look to work him at some stage over the weekend. One would be hopeful of some rain but we wouldn't want it to go to this."
