Form & Verdict
Three-time course winner who's done a lot of his racing in better company; has looked on the decline in recent times and got into the habit of fluffing the start, though, and his yard has been quiet of late.

Always on a strong pace when fourth last week, off the back of his clear second (both at Southwell), and the switch to blinkers has had a positive effect; is one of the more interesting contenders.

Sharply on the decline since returning from almost a year off last summer, coming 27lb down the weights; nothing in recent efforts to suggest he's about to bounce back under a jockey taking her first ride under rules.

Made it 4-5 in cheekpieces and 2-2 for his new yard when bolting up at Newcastle last Tuesday; was allowed his own way at a steady pace in an ordinary handicap that night but he's 2lb well-in under the penalty and holds leading claims again.
