Form & Verdict
Off the mark on turf at the 19th attempt when powering clear in the closing stages at Pontefract 11 days ago; very likely he was flattered by his track position on that occasion but he's landed stall 1 here and isn't handicapped out of things under his 5lb penalty.

Five-time winner on the AW, four of those victories coming around a left-hand turn; in good form at Kempton last month but she has only had two runs on turf and finished unplaced on both occasions (although still running creditably); others more persuasive.

Fully effective around here and his Musselburgh second in April confirmed he retained ability; not built on it since though and he is drawn wider than ideal today.
