Looked a threat until blundering three out on his stable debut at Musselburgh in October and made amends when winning a 3m handicap there on New Year's Day; did it in good style and he's one to consider today.

A model of consistency under Tom Midgley this season, finding only Sultans Pride too strong at Doncaster (3m, soft) last time; he's fine on a sound surface and he's 4lb better off with his stablemate; chance.

Enjoyed a good autumn, with a win and four places, but not at his best in two starts this year; trip short of his best latest but minor honours may be his best hope off current mark.

Kicked off campaign with two wins in a row here and he's continued in good form to finish second over C&D the last twice (including on soft), most recently behind I'm To Blame; he's a key player once more.

Made all over 2m3f at Chepstow and Carlisle and rallied impressively under Tristan Durrell to complete the hat-trick at Sandown (2m4f; 3lb higher today) 17 days ago, all on soft; seen usually at short of 2m7f and has not convinced over this sort of trip but he's in the form of his life.

Made all in Class 3 events at Chepstow and Carlisle the last twice, both over 2m3f on soft ground; climbing back up the weights but Tristan Durrell takes off 7lb; should make a bold bid for the hat-trick.

3-7 over hurdles, the latest win gained in 2m handicap here (good to soft) two months ago; subsequent 2lb nudge up the weights ought to be manageable and he's unexposed over this sort of trip.
