Has kicked off the season in good form since wind surgery and a gelding operation; 2lb higher than when beating Al Mureib by ¾L at Lingfield (7f, good) two-weeks ago.
Dropped back in trip to 1m when always seemingly in control under a confident Pat Cosgrave ride at Redcar (good to firm) earlier this month; 6lb higher; very few worries about dropping back to 7f tonight; strong claims.
7lb higher than when winning at Carlisle (6f heavy) on his final juvenile start; left Kevin Ryan for 20,000gns in October 2018; low-key return/stable debut over 1m here a fortnight ago.
Made a promising start to his racing career as a juvenile, but has struggled to make his mark since switched to handicapping; has made eight of his nine career starts on the Roodeye at Chester (5f winner there in June 2018).
Narrow winner of a 7f Wolverhampton novice in August 2018, beating the 4/11f Theatre Of War; in reasonably deep thereafter and has slowly slipped in the weights; possibly didn't see out the 1m trip at Newmarket latest.
