Pulled well clear of the third when second over C&D (good to soft) in early December and the winner has run well at Cheltenham since; not in the same form back here over Christmas but the handicapper has given him a chance by quickly dropping him back 4lb; hard to get too excited by his two performances on AW Flat last month but he's a contender on that C&D runner-up effort.
