Form & Verdict
One of last season's three wins came over C&D on fast ground; ran a cracker at Newbury on his seasonal return in April (6f, soft) when always close to a strong pace; flopped at Newmarket on 2000 Guineas day when the ground was demanding; much better than that and he still has a bigger effort in him; withdrawn from the Wokingham nine days ago having got loose beforehand.

Four 6f wins last year, notably an impressive success at Ascot in September (good); not at his best in two runs this term but he's edging back down the weights and isn't fully exposed just yet.

One of last season's four wins came over C&D on good to firm ground; slow start to this year but he was better than ever when seeing off eight rivals over C&D two weeks ago; up 3lb but should give it another good go.

Recorded his seventh win when finishing to score under Morgan Cole at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) two weeks ago; 4lb higher on this step back up in grade but he still looks feasibly treated and should get a decent tow into this race; respected.

Had a good year on AW for his new yard, completing a Polytrack hat-trick when getting up late at Lingfield (6f) in April; not so good back on turf last time and he still has something to prove on the grass.

C&D winner for the Charltons in May 2022 and added two handicap wins for this yard later in the year; reportedly scoped dirty when finishing last at Newmarket on his return to action in April; better than that but likely this will require another personal best.

Off the mark for the season when getting on top close home at Goodwood last month (7f, good to firm); too free under a penalty at Newbury four days later; should be fully effective back at 6f and he has won at this track (5f) in the past.
