Won two in a row in June (1m, soft/good to soft) and was suited by the return to slow ground when going close at Redcar (1m, good to soft) last month; today's trip should be fine and he's firmly in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed a good run of form up to 1m1f after winning over 1m here in May, and 10.4f/1m3f trips may have stretched him in August; could get back on track at some point but he needs to perform better than when sixth of nine over 1m at Carlisle most recently in first-time cheekpieces (retained).

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.
