Form & Verdict
Won off today's mark at Wolverhampton (5f) in November but he's not easy to predict and has finished in rear at Wolverhampton and over C&D on last two starts; takes a big drop back in grade but he needs to bounce back near his best.

J: Dougie Costello

T: Lisa Williamson

Recorded his third C&D win when holding off the closers in a Class 5 event last month; didn't fire back on turf at Pontefract last time but he's 0-10 in that sphere and now returns to Tapeta off only 1lb higher than for his penultimate run; dangerous.

J: Gianluca Sanna

All four wins have come on AW but he has twice finished second on turf; career-best effort when narrowly landing 5f handicap at Wolverhampton 15 days ago (well backed) and he's ideally drawn for one that races prominently; could be the answer.

Has claims on several pieces of Wolverhampton form (Tapeta) last year but he's a longstanding maiden who was well held in a similar race over C&D (28-1) on his recent return from a break; looks opposable on balance.

Form & Verdict
Won a maiden handicap at Brighton (5.3f, good to firm) in August but has a mixed record since and he's finished a well-held seventh at Chelmsford (7f/6f) the last twice; comes with risks attached but he's now 2lb lower than for his win and this drop back in trip could help spark a revival.

All three wins have come over C&D and he ran as well as he ever has when second in a Class 5 here in January; lesser effort at Southwell 60 days ago but a break may have freshened him up and he's more than capable at this level.
