J: Callum Rodriguez

After back-to-back Southwell wins (in the new cheekpieces) he wasn't beaten at all far at Bath (5f, heavy) last month; there was enough in that effort to believe he can continue to pay his way off this mark.

Useful record on soft (also ran well enough once on heavy to think it was fine) and he comes here chasing a hat-trick after two Southwell wins over 5f; had a bit in hand on the latter occasion and cheekpieces (2-2 in them) have really helped; up 6lb but needs serious consideration.

Went very close in a 6f Ayr maiden (good) in his final run for Phillip Makin in August but he's been well held in a handicap (6f) and seller (1m) at Redcar in both runs for current yard; record now stands at 0-17 and has something to prove from wide draw back on AW.
