Third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf as a youngster, his three-year-old campaign was restricted to just two runs.
However, Varian has got him fit early this season and hopes to pick up some nice prizes abroad with the son of Dubai Destination.
"It is always satisfying when a plan comes together and this had been his target since his win over course and distance in November," the Newmarket handler told his website, www.varianstable.com.
"He showed a great attitude to win, although he is pretty lazy so I would never expect him to win far.
"They went a good pace which helps him as he stays the mile and a quarter very well.
"He is a four-year-old gelding and we know he travels well, having been to the Breeders' Cup and to Italy and run with credit on both occasions.
"There are no targets yet, but there are some good prizes to be won overseas later in the season.
"He is not straightforward physically so we shall give him plenty of time to get over this effort and freshen him up before he runs again."
