Strong form in well-contested handicaps at about 5f in the autumn (on soft and good) and was having his first run in a 6f turf handicap in Britain when holding on well at Windsor (good to firm) in June; now tackles a downhill track for the first time but still well treated despite going back up 4lb and yard won this in 2021.
