Up for the fight in winning non-handicaps at Wincanton (good to soft) and here (heavy); questionable as to what he actually achieved last time on such desperate ground and especially as they won't no gallop; this should be a different ball game altogether.

Initial runs weren't without promise and he then battled well to floor the long odds-on favourite at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft; Learntalot fourth); should be okay on this softer ground but will probably need to find some more if he's to defy the penalty.

Not obviously well treated on what he's shown on his first four starts (1m7f/2m, good/good to soft) but this half-brother to winners Just For Men (2m3f/2m4f; RPR 122) and Late Date (3m-3m2f; 109) is in good hands to progress and may be an improver now up in trip off a lowly mark on his handicap debut; all the more interesting if particularly strong in the betting.

There's been a whiff of ability, including in one of his two runs for Sam Thomas; 200-1 for his two outings for new stable this winter and latest was not as grim as the result suggests, so he needs a second look off such a lowly opening mark.
