Ran creditably dropped back in distance at Brighton seven weeks ago, taking form figures over 1m to 1214; 3yo gelding who may still have more to offer at this sort of trip; shortlisted.

Two 1m wins since handicapping this summer; form dipped over 1m2f on heavy ground last time but he still has some potential back in trip and on a sounder surface; strong contender.

The hood has helped and he's progressed since handicapping, showing the right attitude to scramble home off 2lb lower at Bath latest; a leap of faith is needed today, though, as he goes beyond 1m and tackles this sort of ground for the first time.
