Competitive at this sort of level in the spring and will be happier back up from 7f; usually has plenty of use made of him and having a rail on his left should help, given he's edged that way more than once under pressure.

Course regular (finished third to De Vegas Kid in this in 2019) who's enjoying a consistent season despite the advancing years; is entitled to close the gap at least on The Covex Kid on much better terms but there's not much room for manoeuvre off this mark.
