0-15 on the grass but he went close over this far at Haydock last month so he's in some sort of form; returning here, the scene of all four of his wins, can only be a good thing.

All seven wins have been over C&D and since wind surgery he's finished second over 6f at Wolverhampton and over this trip here four days ago; those were Class 6 affairs but he's a prominent racer who shouldn't be far away.
