Form & Verdict
Seeks a quickfire hat-trick following recent wins at Lingfield (6f, AW) and Haydock (5f, good to firm, 80-1), the latter from 4lb 'wrong' in a valuable Sunday Series apprentices' handicap; escapes a penalty so is an obvious threat from a low weight with 7lb claimer Morgan Cole remaining on board.

Form & Verdict
Has struck up a good rapport with Ray Dawson and has been in top form of late, winning over C&D in July; fended off a subsequent winner when making all at Chelmsford (5f) latest, for which he's up just 2lb, and he has plenty in his favour from the plum inside berth.
