Maiden; never seriously threatened on turf at Bath last month but he ran well in first-time cheekpieces (discarded here) over the extended 1m1f here previously and this shorter trip could suit; another drawn wide.

He's made a bright start to the campaign, including a 1m3f win at Southwell last month, and his latest second at Pontefract came at the hands of a well-treated rival; has won over C&D in the past and he's respected for a yard in fine form.
