Placed four times in a row before making his breakthrough (12th attempt) in a Market Rasen handicap (2m, good) 15 days ago; travelled well for a long way in that race and he would have won with more in hand if the saddle didn't slip in the closing stages; 6lb rise for that success looks fair and he's an interesting contender.
