Best effort when narrowly denied by Baghdad in the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes at Royal Ascot on his return before a poor effort at Newmarket. Left that behind when seventh in the Ebor. Both those two runs suggested a drop back to 1m4f would suit.
Progressive handicapper won three from his first four including a good Ascot contest over this trip, with a bit in hand in July. His latest run in the Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes shouldn't be underestimated as he failed to see out 1m5,5f on soft.
Tried in three Listed contests this year since sole 2018 start when winning a Nottingham maiden. Best effort by far when second at Windsor over 1m3.5f last time. May have more to offer up in distance and seems to handle any surface.
Won both starts as a juvenile including a Listed event at Pontefract. Has been highly tried in top company with a best fourth in the Epsom Oaks closely followed by a second in the Group 2 Lillie Langtry. Racing consistently and an obvious hope.
