Reserve; sank to a career-low mark in May and has rediscovered winning ways recently at Musselburgh, Redcar and York; the latter was something of an eyeopener when he went in by 8l, for which he's been raised 10lb, but he had even better form as recently as April 2021; up in grade but needs a second look in this bid for a four-timer.

Made it ninth-time lucky on first start for this trainer at Catterick (1m6f, good to soft; 22-1) early last month and may have found the ground against him when well held off this 6lb higher mark at Thirsk (1m6f, good to firm) ten days ago; has run well here before, but likely to find a few too strong.
