Has done most recent racing over 7f but is fine at this trip, as when third over C&D three weeks ago; was below-par the only other time he's worn a visor rather than the usual cheekpieces but has claims otherwise.

He has run with great credit in four of his last five starts (all at 6f), most recently finishing second at Nottingham; stays this longer trip and he is effective here but an overall strike-rate of 1-22 is offputting.

Prominent racer; over two years since the latest of his five wins; he went close at Catterick last month but couldn't quite reproduce that level back there 30 days ago; he hasn't had much racing on the AW but he did run well over C&D early in his career.
