Wins have come from the front on the AW and never off a mark quite this high; made just a fair comeback after six months off at Ascot (5f, good to soft) recently and will need to improve on that.

Made good progress last season and he looks an improved performer at four, winning 6f handicaps at Newmarket and Kempton the last twice; showed a fine attitude on the latter occasion and a 4lb rise is unlikely to prove beyond him; often front runs but showed he doesn't have to lead last time; strong contender.

Struggled in handicaps for his current yard, coming 12lb down the weights; his French win as a 2yo came on turf, so perhaps the surface switch will do the job, but that's rather clutching at straws.

Not had a lot of racing since winning at Newmarket in May of last year (7f, good) and hasn't offered much other than in his penultimate race when under 3l away over 6f (7f is better for him); always behind last time but it wouldn't be a bolt from the blue for him to run well with this headgear reapplied.
