Record is just 1-19; however, ran creditably over C&D the last twice (campaigned in sprints previously) and remains comparatively unexposed at 7f; possibly hit the front a tad too soon last time; shortlisted.

Listed scorer in 2017 then endured a very long losing spell; firmly back in the winning groove this year, completing a Newcastle four-timer (6f/7f), and warrants obvious respect under 4lb penalty for latest win.

One piece of worthwhile form in his last three starts on turf, but returns to the AW off an 8lb lower mark than when successful at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) in January; can take a hold and needs a good pace to aim at, but he may get it and interesting now dropped into a Class 6 for the first time.

Three-time winner at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack), but despite being sent off at 100-1 he ran a big race to finish third of 11 over C&D seven days ago, just over a length behind Love Your Work; still 5lb below his last winning mark, but no better off with his old rival and it remains to be seen if he can back up that recent effort.

Form & Verdict

Not exactly a compelling bet judged on the balance of his form since returning to AW; however, he's a dual C&D scorer who has a fighting chance off his current mark, provided he runs to his best.
