Takes a big step down in grade after trying his hand in G3 contests last three starts. Unproven on the surface but small fields suit, and he finds plenty for pressure on a going day. Bit to do at the weights but more reliable than one or two here.
Has experience of the surface and looks likely to get an easy time on the front here, so has some positives. In good form and last two wins have come in small fields, so despite the fact he's plenty on at the weights, should still put up a bold show
Gets weight allowances as a 3yo and a repeat of his close eighth in the ultra-competitive Commonwealth Cup at Ascot would make him an interesting runner, but yet to prove this trip is really what he wants. Poor last time and bit to find on that.
