Consistent run of form on the AW for this yard, including 1m4f wins on Tapeta and Polytrack; only narrowly denied in a tactically run affair over 1m5f here three weeks ago and, if seeing out this longer trip, he's sure to be involved with Harry Burns taking off 5lb this time.

Sole success in 13 starts came on stable debut here (8.6f) last August, but a couple of recent efforts over this sort of trip suggest stamina isn't an issue; needs to put a modest effort at Southwell last time behind him, albeit that was in a better race.
