Good strike-rate of 5-13 over fences and both the ground (good to soft) and company (Grade 2) were excuses when pulled up at Wincanton in November; a prolific run during the last 12 months has seen his mark rise and he'll need to be right on the ball back from his break after a wind op.

Both his handicap wins have come off a 5lb lower mark; only fifth here a month ago (2m3f) and an overall strike-rate of 2-43 reduces his appeal.
