Form & Verdict
Went close in a maiden and after a forgettable handicap debut at Newcastle he was seen in a very different light at Wolverhampton when he came through from off the pace to win going away; now has to give weight all round in a classified event but should have every chance.

Ran well in defeat on occasions for Richard Fahey; succumbed only to an in-form rival when trying to make all at Kempton (7f; first-time tongue-tie) and could be interesting back at 6f provided stall 14 is okay.

In very good form for new stable in recent weeks and has won his last two over 7f here, more recently when holding on well to make all on Saturday; 5lb penalty demands career-best performance today, though, and he needs to prove he's fully effective over this longer trip.
