Sprang a major surprise over C&D last week (80-1), when application of a tongue-strap was cited as the reason for his sudden improvement; only 1lb higher, even though out of the handicap, and will go very close if showing that form again.

Looked sure to gain a first win since October 2019 when cruising into the lead at Stratford 11 days ago (2m2f), only to fold tamely after the final hurdle; probably stays this trip and likely to be firmly on the premises but hard to be confident after that latest display.
