Won three in a row over 6f last August-October, including two on the Wolverhampton Tapeta; having had a break and wind surgery he would have been closer at Lingfield on New Year's Eve if he'd enjoyed a clear run; no surprise if he's bang there tonight.

Cosy apprentice handicap win at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) ten days ago on his second stable start and only just failed to get up at Lingfield (7f) on Saturday having not had an ideal trip; has the same mark today as for those two races (no penalty for the win) and there can be optimism this headstrong sort will be fine now back down to 6f; strong claims.
