Most of his handicaps over further but signs of late that 5f suits best and Morgan Cole got a nice tune out of him when off the mark at Southwell on Tuesday; widest draw no help but can do better yet.

Things have clicked since returned to 5f of late, winning a pair of low-grade events at Southwell and Wolverhampton and running as well as she ever has when third at Southwell four weeks ago; handicapper has had his say but the best could be yet to come.

Dropped practically on the line by Morgan Cole on each of two 5f Tapeta successes in the past eight days, following up his breakthrough C&D handicap win with a last-gasp denial of Mr Pc at Wolverhampton; penalised and 5lb worse off with that one here, but clearly thriving; case strong again.

Clear signs of ability in a good 5f maiden at the Curragh in August but has beaten a total of three rivals in four handicaps since, the latest two over 6f on AW for this yard; has less to do here and is worth a market check; tongue-tie refitted and blinkers added.
