Something has clicked to have won three of his last four and it was never in doubt at Huntingdon ten days ago (2m3f, good), strolling home 9l to the good; 3lb well in even with a penalty and should be hard to beat.

Much improved since a visor was fitted four starts ago; two wins and creditable places since, all at Newton Abbot; should run well again but 9lb above his highest successful mark and might need another step forward.

Runner-up to a subsequent winner on his handicap debut in May (heavily backed); hasn't built on that in two subsequent efforts, the latest in this combination of aids, but perhaps stepping up in trip can unlock some improvement; not ruled out.

Shaped with a degree of promise on his hurdling debut at Warwick (2m, good) and was still going okay when falling in a three-runner race at Hereford that hadn't really hotted up when he came down; probably vulnerable.
