Five wins under both codes last year but he's been generally disappointing in 2023; his best effort this year was a second over fences in July but he was tailed off at Wolverhampton (1m6f) last week and others are preferred.

Kicked off 2022 with two AW wins (one on Wolverhampton Tapeta) and, following a 68-day break, he was back on song when close third at Lingfield four weeks ago; all starts have been at around 1m2f but he stays that trip well, as shown with big late gains last time, and has stamina in the pedigree.

Currently 3-3 over C&D, making all on Fibresand last March before two recent wins under more patient tactics; further 6lb rise only takes him up to the mark off which he started his handicap career last spring and he has a decent chance of the hat-trick.

Up-and-down profile this year but he's a front-runner who can prove tough to reel in (all three wins have come in small fields) and only one rival managed to do so at Windsor last Thursday when he switched to blinkers from a visor; last of seven last October (1m4f) on his sole run beyond 1m2f.

Well beaten on his reappearance in each of the last three seasons so it's hard to be overly confident on today's comeback run; however, crack 5lb claimer has been booked for this three-time course winner, and he'll be a major player if reproducing the best of last autumn's form.
