Took an age to get off the mark but the return of the visor has helped and he made it 2-2 over 5f when overcoming a slow start from a wide stall last time; the one to beat despite a 5lb rise.

All wins have come after a recent outing, often from the front, so an absence and stall 10 isn't a great mix; he resumes on a handy mark however.

Well into the veteran stage now but he's an AW specialist who recorded his tenth course win when finishing well to score over C&D last month; up 5lb but that was a comfortable success after a short break and he remains feasibly treated; shortlisted.

At the veteran stage, but this nine-time course winner is still more than capable at this level as he showed when twice runner-up off this mark over C&D at the start of the year; did win fresh in his younger days, but more recent evidence suggests he may just need this after 73 days off.
