Beaten favourite on all four runs here last winter, second each time; returned from 10 months' absence to put matters to right over C&D last week, wandering around but seeing it out well to beat an odds-on favourite with a bit to spare in an otherwise weak affair; officially 4lb wrong here but potentially well handicapped so certainly not one to rule out.
