Soft ground 7f winner at Newmarket in July and has recorded respectable efforts in defeat in two subsequent starts. Finished a close fifth at Newmarket (7f, good-to-firm) last time out and can go well stepping back up in trip.
Winner over 7f at Carlisel (good-to-firm) in a first time hood (retained since) in July. Good second at Redcar (7f, good-to-firm) last month and stamina to prove stepping up in distance.
Sole success came in a 1m match at Brighton (good-to-firm) 13 months ago. Some decent efforts in defeat this term and interesting to see how he fares.
Justified odds-on favouritism when winning by 7L over C&D on firm ground in July. Absent since and represents leading connections on handicap debut.
Winner over an extended 1m at Nottingham (good) in June. Placed twice from four subsequent starts but disappointing on the AW last time.
Debut winner over 6f at Newbury (good) just under a year ago. Interesting runner dropping in distance having finished fourth at Doncaster (1m2f, good-to-firm) last month.
Last Year's Winner
Macaque (5/2), Watheeqa (11/4), Orange Suit (3/1), Whitehall (7/1), Ghayadh (8/1), Starboy (9/1)
