Veteran who ended a long losing run with a comfortable C&D win in a Racing League handicap in September; that came off a 5lb higher mark and he's run well enough on occasions since to think he retains a good chunk of ability; he'll need a good pace to aim at but he's a danger to all dropping into a Class 5 handicap for the first time.
