Showed ability in his last three starts on turf, including when a close second of 15 at Newbury (6f, good) in September; makes his AW debut after three months off having been gelded in the meantime; half-brother to a Polytrack winner and the extra furlong ought to suit on pedigree; respected.

Ten-race maiden but he's run well in 7f handicaps in his last three starts including a close call off only 1lb lower at Southwell (Tapeta; cheekpieces added) on penultimate run; seems tactically versatile and he's respected on this drop back in grade.
