Has dropped a long way in the weights and he was a fair fourth of 14 over C&D last time but that took his record to 1-20 and he's not easy to predict; others look stronger.

Off the mark (14th attempt) with a brave front-running win in amateurs' handicap at Thirsk (6f, good) last month; had excuse when switched to slow ground at Catterick last time but her AW form lags well behind her best turf efforts and she has something to prove back in this sphere.
