Form & Verdict
Capable of RPRs in the 90s over 7f as well as shorter in his 2020-21 pomp, and worth a return to this trip having got outpaced in 6f 0-60s here on his last three starts; effective on slow ground when on song, and mark never lower.

Last season's two wins came over 7f on slower than good (one of them at this track); creditable efforts on his last three starts and he looks more likely to give his running than many.
