Ran green when 22-1 at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) three weeks ago but he really got the hang of things in the closing stages and finished well for a last-gasp win; this is tougher under a penalty but he's open to progress and is respected for in-form yard.

Finished second at Newmarket last summer (6f) and he sets the standard on that run; last of six at Lingfield nine days ago (7f) on his handicap debut but beaten just over 3l; hood added for the first time; some encouragement for this trip on breeding but his stamina is a potential stumbling block.

Second at Newmarket (6f) in August stands out a mile from his other three starts; gelded since Wolverhampton maiden latest; this is his first handicap but he needs overall improvement and it's a warm race.
