Has progressed nicely round here this winter, completing a hat-trick over 1m4f off a 4lb lower mark for in-form connections 19 days ago; he can pull hard, though, and will need to be more amenable now upped in trip.

Often takes a keen hold, but nonetheless has been in fine form on the AW since last summer including four wins, three of them at this track (1m3f/1m4f); beaten just over 2l into third of seven behind Let Her Loose over 1m3f here a fortnight ago and now 4lb better off; likely to figure again.

Took a while to find his feet but has had a cracking winter, winning three of his last four starts; all four were at this track and over 1m3f or 1m4f; has 5lb penalty for his win one week ago but today's opposition has plenty of questions to answer.

J: David Probert

T: Michael Herrington

Took a while to find his feet but he has thrived this winter, scoring twice over 1m3f here and running a career best when second over C&D three weeks ago; that form looks solid, with the winner going in again here on Tuesday, and he looks a big player again off just 2lb higher.

Form & Verdict
Has a lower mark on AW compared to turf and he may have needed the run over C&D in December following a break; needs a sizeable step back in the right direction today, however, and he's 0-18 on AW.

Having his second start back after a 130-day absence when third of nine over C&D in February; the winner and second (twice) have been successful since, but has been off for another 81 days in the meantime and his record of 0-19 on the AW sounds a note of caution.

Missed all of 2020 and most of 2021; third of 14 over 1m3f here last month showed that significant ability remains but he was soundly beaten over C&D 13 days later; cheekpieces join recent tongue-tie; none too solid but he has more to recommend him than most of these.

Makes handicap debut off a basement mark in first-time cheekpieces and a market check is advised; however, he's been beaten a long way at big odds on all three starts and it's very hard to make a case.
