Very useful handicapper; promising second in 10f novice stakes at Newbury (good to soft) in July 2020 and duly went one better at Wolverhampton over 1m4f later the same month; won on handicap debut at Sandown over 1m2f before being beaten at Newmarket; figures of 4334 at Meydan in early 2021, in races over 1m2f - 1m6f; wore cheekpieces on last two of those outings; very disappointing in first-time visor in Ascot handicap (1m6f) in June (hung left) and well down the field in Old Newton Cup at Haydock (1m4f) in July (lost a shoe); held again at Ripon next time in July (12f) and again at Meydan in January and February 2022; looked revitalised when winning a 10f handicap at Ripon on next start in May; followed that with a sound fourth place in the Duke Of Edinburgh Handicap over 1m4f at Royal Ascot in June and similarly good runs at York and Goodwood in July when fifth in the John Smith's Cup and second in the Chesterfield Cup, both over 1m2f; unsuited by slow gallop over 10f at Yarmouth next time; respectable ninth of 28 in Cambridgeshire after that.
