All of his three wins have come on Tapeta (including two over C&D) but he returned from an absence with a low-key run behind Cicely here last month; was weak in the market and should benefit from that run but he needs to get back near his best.

Kicked off 2023 with two placed efforts at this track (8.6f) and he got back on the scoresheet with an emphatic win over 1m4f here (classified event) on Friday; now drops back in trip but that was a smooth success and he's a big player again under a penalty.
