Visored for 1st time, seventh of 9 in handicap at Lingfield (7f, soft) in June, the underfoot conditions a plausible excuse. No surprise to see a better showing back from a break/on AW.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A competitive handicap with the narrow vote in favour of JENSON BENSON. Progressive around this venue during the second half of 2021, he wasn't seen to best effect when third in a small-field handicap at Kempton (12f) on his latest outing. Still one to be positive about, he should put up a better showing here. Almaan and Agent of Fortune are also fancied to feature.
