Had a good start to his career winning three times last year. Gone close a couple of times this year in stronger races and should appreciate this drop in grade. Leading contender dropped 2lb.
His better efforts on turf have all come with cut in the ground and he's on a long losing run at present. Slightly better effort last time at Kempton more encouraging but others make more appeal.
You can probably put a line through his last run at Ascot as he was never travelling. In good form prior to that and claiming rider gets on well with him. Difficult to dismiss.
Winner at Lingfield (1m1f, good to soft) two starts back. Couldn't back that up off this 4lb higher mark at Epsom last time but does prefer some cut so any rain will be a bonus. Step back up in trip is also a positive.
Improved from debut run to win very easily on his next two starts. Makes handicap debut off a very workable mark against his elders here and has sound claims of completing the hat-trick for a yard that won this with a similar type last year.
Just a maiden win to his name so far in eight starts. Not beaten all that far in a far race last time and this is slightly easier. Still has a bit to find to be considered for win purposes.
