Career highlight remains winning Group One Queen Anne at Royal Ascot 2018 beating this year's winner Lord Glitters. Winless since but two of his four 2019 efforts have been solid and down in class he now has his chance.
Certainly seems to enjoy getting his toe in and gained first success of 2019 latest on good to soft when winning the Porsche Handicap at Ascot (1m). Big step up in class now but that win was more than impressive.
Heavy ground Listed winner at two started the season finishing a ¾L second in a substandard Greenham at Newbury over 7f. Close third in a German Group Two further proof that he is up to this grade. Gelded since trying 1m2f unsuccessfully.
Winner of the Listed Feilden Stakes (1m1f) first time out wasn't disgraced when seventh in the 2000 Guineas next and after looking a doubtful stayer over 1m2f the last twice appeals more here especially if getting favoured soft lead.
Dual Newbury scorer had two of these behind when third in the Hampton Court Stakes (Group 3) at Royal Ascot latest. Raced exclusively with soft in going description so needs more rain especially stepping back to 1m.
Group Three winner/Group Two placed at two struggled despite acquitting himself well earlier this season but back-to-back wins latest at Haydock and Pontefract (Listed) show him to remain on the up.
