Form & Verdict

Seemed well suited by the step up to 2m7f when gaining a breakthrough win at Market Rasen (good to soft) three weeks ago, just pushed out by Brian Hughes to assert; does not look overburdened by a 6lb rise, should have little difficulty coping with this extra yardage, and he's the one to beat again in a first-time tongue-strap.

Back-to-back wins at Ayr (2m3f/3m, good to soft) in November and subsequent form offers encouragement that he can cope with this sort of mark; not at best last time but he goes well here and should be in the mix.
