Three wins last season; dropping to 6f didn't look an issue when second at Southwell in January and he wasn't seen to best effect back there last month; likely to give a good account.

Form & Verdict

Sprung a 50-1 surprise over C&D on his debut in November; subsequent efforts have shown that wasn't a fluke and a non-staying effort over 1m here 17 days ago is easy to excuse; blinkers could give him a lift and he's edging down the weights.
