Form & Verdict
Narrowly justified favouritism in C&D contest (on good ground) 16 days ago, giving Jim Goldie his 1,000th winner as a trainer; remains well treated back up just 2lb, as he defied this mark in the Bronze Cup here (good to firm) last September; major contender.

Has continued below his peak form in three starts since rejoining Richard Fahey, following a spell in Ireland; however, was useful as a 2yo and could turn things around off current mark.

Raced mainly on good/softer; mixed results over various trips this term; made all (off 3lb lower) in this race last year, recording a third C&D success, and looks interesting back in this scenario.
