Over three years since his last win; placed in Group 1 company over C&D last summer; bitterly disappointing this year, often finishing weakly, but he's plummeted down the weights and he now starts out for a new stable; carries obvious risk but it wouldn't be a bolt from the blue were he to win easily either.

Hasn't won since his 2yo days; twice placed in Group 1 races since but seems to be on the downgrade this season and difficult to recommend despite a plunging mark.

All three wins over 5f as 2yo, one in C&D handicap at this meeting (good; also won on good to soft and soft); has run some cracking races in defeat since, including when third in 2022 King's Stand, and had excuses for both British defeats in 2023; tongue tied over 6f on latest but not today.
