He gained his first handicap success when digging deep to land a 5f handicap at Doncaster three weeks ago; 5lb higher mark will demand another surge of improvement on this AW debut.

Four wins since March, including on Tapeta; he has performed with credit in handicaps on his last two starts but will need to squeeze out a bit more if he is to reverse Doncaster placings with Mattice.

Was looking thoroughly exposed earlier in the year but he got off the mark at Wolverhampton in March (6f) and he hasn't looked back, adding handicaps at Lingfield (AW; twice) and Windsor to his haul; solid effort behind Swayze at Haydock last time (5f, soft) but he had no excuses; another 3lb higher today and vulnerable for win purposes.

Slipped a long way down the weights after a barren 2021 campaign and took full advantage when readily seeing off 12 rivals at Pontefract in April (5f, good to soft); mixed bag since but this stiff 5f should play to his strengths and he is interesting with Paul Mulrennan taking over for first time.

Last season's two wins came at sharp Musselburgh but he showed that a stiffer track wasn't an issue when going down by a short head at Carlisle 16 days ago (5f, good to firm); upped 1lb but still of interest on last season's peak efforts.

Classy as 2yo and some of last season's handicap form also reads very well; hasn't hit top gear in three runs for this yard but he continues to edge down the weights and his time will come; AW debut.
