Has an inconsistent profile and was well beaten at Ayr (3m, heavy) about three weeks ago; however, he lost a shoe and that run may have come too soon, just eight days after a good second at Carlisle (3m, soft); enters calculations on that penultimate effort.

Beaten when unseating three out on handicap/chase debut at Wincanton in January but was a different proposition in these cheekpieces at Uttoxeter (3m, soft) last month when winning easily; a 7lb rise may not prevent a follow-up win if the cheekpieces maintain their positive effect.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.
