Won four times for Johnston stable, most recently over 1m5f at Ayr in September; drops back in distance today but his new trainer's horses are often versatile trip-wise, and he was a fair third of six at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) on his stable debut earlier this month; could build on that today.

Three AW handicap wins around 1m2f since snapped up by current connections; creditable third of five at Doncaster (1m2f, good to firm) four days ago was the best of his light career on turf and he travelled best, so another go at 1m for this sometimes free-going sort could still be worth exploring.

Usually front-runs, including for his three wins last year over 1m/1m2f; faded at Ripon on penultimate start when he tried 1m4f for the first time and although he fared much better when second of 14 at Hamilton (Happy third) two weeks ago over 1m3f, dictating this large field should be hard.
