His C&D win (soft) last October off 2lb lower represents strong form; not at his best in either start this year but Oisin Murphy takes over today and he's fully effective on fast ground; can do better.

Last five starts over C&D, winning in Class 4 and Class 3; creditable third most recently; faces a stiffer task back in Class 2 but looks likely to give another good account kept to Windsor.

Scored twice over 6f on the AW in April and has finished runner-up in three of his four starts on turf since, the latest when beaten less than a length in a field of 14 at Windsor (6f, good to firm) on Monday; a similar effort would put him right in the mix.

Made all at Kempton in April for a second AW success within a week; has continued the good work back on grass and, from off the pace, he didn't get the breaks behind Amazonian Dream here four weeks ago; has no great margin for error off current mark but he's 6lb better off with the Millman runner and can see him going well.
