13-race maiden; kept on for respectable fourth at Hamilton (5f, good to firm) a fortnight ago and is probably worth another crack at 6f but others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict
Came from behind to win at Ripon (6f, good) last month, his second run after a break, and was placed after racing much closer to the pace at Doncaster (6f, good) ten days ago; probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but ought to give another good account.

Yet to strike form this season and, worryingly, he refused to race on his penultimate appearance; very well handicapped now and sure to appreciate this drop in grade but the cheekpieces (worn for his last four wins) remain absent.

Pretty consistent over 5f in recent weeks, and now only 1lb higher than when scoring over that trip at Hamilton (good) in May; not yet proven over 6f, though, and his tendency to lose ground at the start remains an issue.
