Henry Candy's seven-year-old Limato is like that one dinner guest who wants a plain burger, with no gherkin, lettuce or sauce.
Mr Fussy appears to only act and turn up on good or fast ground, but in his defence, his connections have always tried to push him to become a miler and not a sprinter.
He is clearly a minimum distance horse and ventures over eight furlongs have cleared never worked.
When he switched back to six furlongs last season in a lower grade to gather some confidence, he came through with three straight victories - two of which at Newmarket.
His sire averaged seven furlongs and that is the distance required on Saturday in the Criterion Stakes at Newmarket, as he looks to better his fourth on return at York.
Limato has his preferred ground conditions, so time to produce what we know he can.
