Consistent type with 5 wins, between 1600m and 2495m, from 16 starts. Rarely tested out of stakes company in last two seasons. Placings in the G3 John Porter Stakes (2400m) and G2 Hardwicke Stakes (2392m) preceded a first Group success in the G3 September Stakes (2399m) at Kempton. Performed admirably two back when fourth to Highland Reel in the G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Vase in December, his first attempt at the Sha Tin 2400m. Never in the race when 9th last start in the Emir’s Trophy (2400m), a Qatari G1. Usually races prominently or sits midfield. Goes on most surfaces but has only missed the placings three times – two of those were on slick, shifting ground.
