Form & Verdict
Improved for the switch to handicaps/step up in trip this season, finishing third over 1m4f at Southwell before justifying favouritism over 1m3f there 18 days ago; 3lb rise not excessive and dropping in distance shouldn't be an issue.

T: George Scott

Struggled in novice/maiden events in the autumn but he's done really well switched to AW this year and made it 3-5 in handicaps when scoring on the step back up to 1m4f at Wolverhampton on Tuesday; has penalty back on turf but that was a comfortable success last time and he's a big player again if he can transfer his progress back to this sphere.

Form & Verdict
Down the field in three novice/maiden runs but he was the subject of good market support ahead of his handicap debut at Lingfield last month (1m2f); still looked very green on that occasion but ran on well at the finish and he's capable of better; visor could give him a lift.
