Still a maiden and when third at Taunton (2m2f, good to soft) he was beaten nearly 8l, albeit having jumped left on occasions; the cheekpieces could help in that respect and he's one of the likelier winners.

Form & Verdict
Well beaten on two of four starts for new stable this season but won the other two, the latter here (1m7f, good) nine days ago; has 7lb penalty to shoulder today and it's hard to predict whether he'll be in the right mood again, but the longer trip should not be a problem.

Has a patchy profile but he made it 2-7 over fences when scoring at Wincanton (1m7f, good) last month and he backed that up with a fair front-running third over 2m4f there last time; hard to rule out another good run but probably needs to resume his progress to defy this mark.
