Seems ideally suited by 6f at Southwell and he was still in contention when badly hampered there in March; this mark not beyond him but he's yet to shine in three turf appearances.

First three wins were on AW but latest was a comfortable success at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) 18 days ago and that was only his fourth run on turf; 4lb rise for that win looks fair and he could have more to offer in this sphere; big player.

Form & Verdict
Lightly-raced 4yo who made an encouraging stable debut at Thirsk two weeks ago (6f, good to soft), racing away from the rail but keeping on stoutly behind a well-handicapped winner; 2lb higher but still has potential as a sprinter and getting back on faster ground shouldn't be an issue.

Favourite for this race last year but his was one of the stalls to open late and his chance was compromised as a result; solid effort at Doncaster two weeks ago and rider's claim will help offset being 3lb out of the weights; effective on most ground and likely to go well.

Two 1m wins (good to firm and AW) for Sir Michael Stoute but was pulled up on final start for him last May and he hasn't found his level for new yard this year, over 1m and 6f; returns to 7f for the first time since his debut, in a first-time hood, with something to prove.
