Winner of 7f AW novice in October and he never saw Just A Spark coming when headed close home in his first 6f handicap, at Kempton in February; weights turnaround favours him but improvement needed if he's to win at this level back on turf for the first time since his French debut.

J: Aidan Keeley

T: Roger Varian

Lightly-raced 4yo who is improving as he gains experience, most recently just pipped at Kempton last month when dropped to 6f for the first time; stiff test at the trip should suit and he's open to further progress; unlikely to be missed in the market though (sent off at 8-13, 13-8, 9-4 and 2-1 for his last four defeats).

Form & Verdict
Looked a likely type for a big prize when winning this in 2023 (good to soft) and one at Ascot (soft) but expensive to follow in the best 6f handicaps after, albeit he didn't have his ground in two of them; gelded since and returned with a solid third to higher-rated rivals in a Listed race at Doncaster; mark unchanged and this looks the right race so should go well.

Down the field in Group 3 Nell Gwyn (7f, good to soft) in April on sole run this season but she's had a wind op since and was a very talented 2yo last year, the highlight a Group 3 win at Ayr (6f, good); also effective on good to soft; if back on song she could be a contender on handicap debut.
