Now 0-15 so perhaps not one to make excuses for but the saddle reportedly slipped when edged out in a similar race over 1m3f at Kempton last month; had gone close over C&D prior to that and he's more appealing than most; cheekpieces return today.

Prominent racer; landed a 1m handicap at Southwell on her return from six months off last month, beating the reopposing Odds Socks Havana by over 2l; only midfield at Wolverhampton last week but she was sent for home some way out and tied up in the straight; more appealing than many.

Form & Verdict
Has blown rather hot and cold in recent starts and losing run stands at 12, but all ten wins have come around here and he is off the same mark as when landing this race last year; wouldn't put it past him to go well.

22lb lower than when returning from a break last August, but despite some creditable efforts including when fourth of ten at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) 12 days ago, his losing run stands at 14; this trip probably sharp enough for him now; blinkers return.
