Made it 3-3 in sprints round here when making all over C&D late last year; 7lb rise will make life tougher against a slightly better calibre of opposition but there's no knowing how far he might go at this stage.

Didn't settle that well but ultimately had something in hand, despite hanging, when winning over 6f here before Christmas, confirming the promise of his earlier stable debut; 8lb higher here, running off new mark with a penalty on top, but the return to 5f may well suit.
