Placed here on consecutive starts in December/January (5f/6f) and has slipped to a tempting mark but was safely held on his last three outings and needs to up his game.

Well below best form this year but suggested he might be ready to capitalise upon some help from the handicapper when staying-on second over C&D a fortnight ago and is well drawn again today.
