Not the traffic issues of some but still the winner on merit when determinedly breaking duck at the ninth attempt in a C&D last month (RPR 53), with But You Said and Rhubarb behind; still pretty unexposed at 5f following just two runs at the trip, and not hard to shortlist again.

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.
