Progressive novice; made all at Sandown two starts ago and, after his main market rival fell, ran out an easy winner over C&D two weeks ago (made most); 7lb rise may well not prevent him completing the hat-trick.

Came good over hurdles at fourth attempt, with short-odds success in Catterick maiden (2m3f, good) in February; found 2m4f on soft ground too taxing on last month's handicap debut at Sandown but he certainly didn't run badly there, and he remains one to be interested in.
