Wins have come in early summer, twice round Brighton, and he has his moods; first-time headgear is the possible angle with him but he can pull hard and whether a slog in these conditions is ideal (done most racing over shorter) is questionable.

Gained due reward for her consistency when finally off the mark over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago; raised 3lb since and, given that she's most proficient on soft ground (form figures 23231) and thrives for the handling of Georgia Dobie, she rates as the clear pick.
