Has easily made all in two of his last four starts (2m3f/2m1f, soft), including here in December; he's inconsistent and up 10lb for last time, while there's a change of headgear too (hasn't shone in cheekpieces previously), but he'll be tough to catch if repeating his latest fine form.

Under a bold ride he came home 8.5l clear at Exeter in December (2m3f, soft); couldn't repeat the same tactics back there after going up 9lb and again at Exeter last time he couldn't dominate before dropping out; expect another positive ride back in distance on this sharper track and he's back down the weights.
