His 5l fourth to Hillcrest (prominent in the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett betting) last November now reads well but he has failed to build on that in two further starts at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen; having said that, he looks likely to pick up some prize money in this weak contest.

Encouraging second on debut at Catterick in December (2m3f, good to soft; albeit no match for the winner) and soft ground may not have suited at Ludlow last time; however, he needs to build on his initial form if he's to make an impact today and others have more pressing claims.
