5yo who has won four of his seven starts this season and the latest success was a comfortable win at Ayr (7f) on Monday; this step back up in trip is no problem and he's a big player under a penalty; last win was on good but he handles most ground.

Ended a long losing run when routing seven rivals in a 1m 0-55 handicap at Yarmouth last week; a literal interpretation of that form gives him strong claims, despite a 5lb penalty, but it may be prudent to take a cautious view; held by Coconut Bay on a C&D run in May.
