6yo who has not been easy to predict but he got back on the scoresheet when beating 15 rivals in a series final here (2m5f, soft) last month; up 6lb but he kept on well last time and is open to more progress back up in trip; shortlisted.

Placed twice off higher marks towards end of last year, latterly here (2m6f, soft), but last month's C&D run was disappointing and he's against some progressive rivals today.
