Didn't progress after last spring's win at Chepstow (2m3f, good) but is now 1lb below that mark, and his recent third behind Wetanwindy here (2m4f, good to soft) was a good effort; no surprise if he features.

Struggled to cope with heavy ground on handicap debut in December but had wind op soon afterwards and, with a tongue-tie added, has made the frame on both starts this year, perhaps more notably when second of 15 at Fontwell (2m5f, good to soft) on first occasion; respected.
