Won this last year, when improving for his reappearance run in Wetherby Grade 2; 10l second to Proschema in that same Wetherby race last month and could pose more of a threat today, but it's a hotter race than 12 months ago and he'll need some of the others to underperform.

Posted a career-best when easily winning a Grade 2 at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) last month, with Thomas Darby 10l back in second; also effective on good ground; had the benefit of a recent run last time and now faces classier opposition, but he was certainly impressive and has to be considered.
