Won twice for Gary Moore, including here, in late 2021/early 2022; returned from an 18-month absence to be well held in three runs (two over fences) for Chris Gordon before moving to James Owen; fared no better in a Class 3 at Newbury latest, so cheekpeices are now applied.

Form & Verdict
Ridden out to score over C&D (novices', good) in October; absent until returning for handicap debut at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) recently, pulling up after losing his action approaching the home turn; strong in the market there, so interesting to see if he can bounce back.

Ex-Godolphin and bred accordingly; brings momentum into his handicap debut after small-field wins on soft at Newbury and Plumpton, both of them gained with the minimum of fuss; he's a good looker with scope and could easily be on a lenient mark; still holds the Boodles entry for next Tuesday and picking up a penalty here would get him on the grid if connections so wished.
