Most form since late 2020 has been unconvincing but he did offer some hope when second at Nottingham on return from a break in October (1m2f, good to soft); cannot disregard off 6lb lower.

Form & Verdict

A very useful addition to up-and-coming trainer's string on the AW, winning three over 7f and 1m at Southwell; hard to assess on earlier turf form (0-13) but is 10lb lower than his latest win nine days ago and his stamina for the return to 1m2f is a bigger query.

Losing run goes back two years and he's been treading water at different trips on the AW this winter but now 6lb lower than when going close on his latest turf run, at Chester in September (extended 7f, heavy); slight concern that this is only his second run on turf in the last 19 months but there's a weights case to be made.

All three wins at 1m4f on AW, the latest of them two years ago; however, he ran well when a close fourth in a division of this race 12 months ago (good; off 7lb higher) and his recent third over 1m3f on Kempton AW shows him to be in good heart; solid chance.
