Unexposed 4yo who took a marked step forward when decisively accounting for seven rivals at Wolverhampton nine days ago (despite drifting right when hitting the front); effectively only 4lb higher today (2lb well in) and still has potential.

J: Callum Shepherd

T: David Simcock

Showed some ability in his first two starts but took a step backwards when ninth of 12 in a novice over C&D last month, finishing around 10l behind Sourire Secret; has been gelded in the meantime but clearly needs to resume his progress on handicap debut.

Second and first in C&D handicaps on his first two starts for new yard; there was a slight dip in his form when 6-4 favourite going for a quick double 18 days ago, but no surprise if he bounces back.

Form & Verdict
String of good efforts on Polytrack last winter, including a 1m4f win; not seen again until two below-form displays here this winter and he's been dropped just 1lb for those, but it was on his third run back during his last AW campaign that he returned to competitiveness.

Not the most consistent but is a dual turf winner who can make the running; needs to better latest efforts back up in trip but this isn't a strong race and he can't rule out.
