Has gone the wrong way since winning at Lingfield a year ago, running poorly on final 2018 start, and looking none too keen when tailed off at Brighton on his return in May. Not one to place any faith in, despite his ability.
Won over 1½m at Lingfield in December, but a little in-and-out since, failing to find much after travelling well at Salisbury (1½m, soft) last time. May do better on quicker ground, and possibly still working his way to peak fitness.
Best effort to date when fourth in a soft-ground maiden over 1¼m here in April, but she hasn't progressed, and beaten over 13L on handicap debut at Brighton last time. Still early days, but has a bit to prove.
Off the mark on his second handicap start when tackling 1½m for the first time at Salisbury in May. Excused his next effort on soft ground, and better than the result when fifth in a blanket finish at Lingfield last time. Should be thereabouts.
Good third in an AW event over 1½m on handicap debut at Lingfield in April. Struggled on turf debut at Windsor subsequently, though, and has something to prove on this surface.
