Resurgent 5yo who gained a fifth 1m win since December when leading towards the finish in a competitive race at Lingfield on Good Friday (Benavente 1.5l back in third); the drop back to 7f asks a different question but he did win over C&D earlier in his career and further progress can't be discounted in his current mood.

Having his third crack at this race today and he showed the track was no problem when collared late by Spanish Star 12 months ago (good to firm; fully effective on slow ground); coming to the boil this season and he would have finished closer at Newmarket last time but for some late interference; good mark and should have a big run in him.

Hardly a frequent winner since coming to Britain, but he's on an attractive mark (5lb lower than when third over C&D last autumn) and shaped well when sixth of 16 over 1m at the Guineas meeting here; returning to 7f should be ideal and he won't be inconvenienced if there's rain; might be the answer.
