Arrives on a long losing run and visor is tried after he hung right when respectable fourth in 1m6f Chelmsford handicap in March; others appeal more.

Bumper winner; nearly opened his Flat account at Newcastle (2m) on penultimate start, going down narrowly; form dipped last time but gave impression he's ready for this drop back to 1m6f; remains of interest.

Now 0-9 on the Flat but he's recorded two solid placed efforts off this mark (C&D first occasion) since returning from wind surgery; should give another good account.

Had wind surgery prior to an encouraging effort at Southwell (2m) three weeks ago; bumper winner on this AW course; interesting back here.

Winning debut in Newcastle bumper last January but has been hammered in handicaps at 1m2f-1m6f since September (in cheekpieces latest, retained); needs subsequent wind surgery to make a big difference.

Won a Tapeta bumper on his debut in January; promise on third Flat run but an opening handicap mark of 76 proved out of his range; now drops into a Class 6 for the first time with cheekpieces fitted; could yet have a future as an AW stayer.
