It's now fourteen runs since his last win in 2021 but he arrives in good nick, travelling with plenty of zest when eighth in a good-quality handicap at Goodwood last week. Eased 2 lb and this is easier.

Low-mileage 5-y-o who showed improved form to get off the mark on the back of an 18-month absence when scoring with a bit up his sleeve at York in June. Up 9 lb and matched that level when third upped to 10f at Sandown a month ago.

Has looked ungenuine but doing little wrong at present, overcoming a pace bias to win successive races in July. Excellent fourth at Goodwood a week ago and likely to give it another good shot.

Useful form for third win in what was a very productive juvenile campaign at Epsom in September. Didn't really relish step up to 10.3f but still ran well in the Dee Stakes on return. Failed to match that level twice since.
