Brian Hughes was also aboard when winning by 7l at Hexham (2m, good) and it could be that he failed to stay 2m4f when penalised here four weeks ago; entitled to be in the thick of things.

Weighted to reverse course placings in early June with Haveyougotmymoney and he was just as good when again placed at Stratford; should give his running but he's 0-8 and vulnerable once more.

Between November of last year and this May he won six times in seven starts (2m3f-2m4f); however, shot up the weights as a consequence and he's beaten only one finisher in his last three appearances; has stamina to prove.

Divided the now smart chasers Mackenberg and Bavington Bob in a soft-ground bumper at Carlisle in late 2019, so evidently has plenty of ability; changed hands for £20,000 not long afterwards but his debut for this yard has been a long time coming.
