Won the 2017 Northumberland Plate off today's mark, with all his best form coming on the Synethics. He's an eleven-race maiden on the turf and his form this year wouldn't suggest he'll be winning any time soon.
Won last year's Northumberland Plate; well held in the latest renewal of that contest

Beaten just a neck in Listed company on his return in April but has shaped with little promise since. Beaten a fair way in a Glorious Goodwood handicap in August and the handicapper is only slowly relenting his grip. Yard in poor form.
