Has been as good as ever this season, with his wins at Ascot (6f, good) in May and at Musselburgh (7f, good) in June but his form has cooled in last two starts; needs to step up again after those efforts but an in-form claimer is booked and he's probably still not handicapped out of things.

Form & Verdict
Has won on good going but last five wins on soft or heavy, three of them here at 7f and 6f; however, his season has yet to get off the ground and he was well beaten here in June when cheekpieces returned on latest start; temptingly treated but an about-turn is needed.

Suited by soft ground, but out of the frame in all five starts since returning in March and was particularly disappointing with this headgear combination re-fitted at Haydock (7f, soft) last time, given that he had conditions in his favour and had dropped 2lb below his last winning mark; enough to prove.

12/1
