Without a win since 2021 but has made the frame on all four starts this season, most notably when second at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) two runs ago; continues to slip down the weights and has possibilities if the first-time cheekpieces give him a boost.

Raised only 2lb for last month's Wincanton win (1m7f, soft) and still looks well treated, as he defied this mark at Kempton three years ago; lightly raced since; has to be feared.

Has form figures of 1312 since fitted with tongue-tie, the wins gained at Newton Abbot and Exeter; creditable second at Haydock (2m, soft) last time; has solid claims and should go well again.

All three chase wins came in 2021; well treated on all that and, although last to finish on his stable debut at Carlisle (2m, soft) after three months off, he wasn't beaten far and might come on for the run; has done his winning over shorter but probably stays this far.

Scored at Chepstow (2m, heavy) three starts ago but is sometimes let down by his jumping and wasn't helped by a couple of errors at Uttoxeter last weekend; comes with some risks.
