Three course wins including one over C&D, and three times in a hood; perfectly capable of popping up again on the best of this winter's form and perhaps fitting cheekpieces, after running with no headgear since October 2022, will provide a helpful novelty factor.

Losing run up to 18, but things haven't panned out ideally for him a couple of times lately and this three-time course winner lurks on a dangerous mark, 9lb lower than when last successful and 1lb lower than when going close over C&D in December; may be worth chancing.
