Very well backed at Yarmouth (5f, good to soft) on Tuesday but he never looked like landing a blow from the rear; drawn widest today and he has been expensive to follow this year.

Unproven over 7f but he won twice over 6f here last October and last month's reappearance run here (6f) was a respectable effort, when keeping on well on his first outing since wind surgery; every chance he'll build on that latest run and he could play a leading role if staying the trip.

Prominent racer who made all in a 6f handicap at Ripon in May (good); back at that level when a close third at Carlisle 18 days ago and an unchanged mark helps; has run well over C&D in the past and drying ground in his favour; more appealing than many.

Form & Verdict

On a losing run but he served notice that he could exploit his reduced mark when fourth (just behind Gullane One; blinkers refitted) at Carlisle 18 days ago, having to switch at a crucial stage; slower ground no issue and he will be a danger to all with a clear passage.

Thrown in on his 2yo form but it has been a big struggle in the last two seasons; tumbling down the weights and well drawn for a prominent racer; blinkers might help too and he's worth a market check.
