Dual winner in 2022, the latest at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) on his penultimate outing; beaten a head and a neck into third of 13 behind George Morland at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last time and closely matched with that rival at the revised weights; respected, especially if allowed his own way in front.
