Has won on heavy, and at up to 2m7f, but his latest win was over C&D (soft) in December and he didn't find much back over 2m7f at Taunton since; still of interest returned to this C&D on the testing ground.

Cruised clear to win by 7l over C&D (good) just under a year ago and looked back in prime form when scoring at Exeter (2m3f, soft) in December; doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but still features prominently in calculations.

Won by a whisker over hurdles at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) in November but he's 6lb higher here in a better race and has since made it 0-4 as a chaser; one or two others appeal more.
