Took well to first-time blinkers at Lingfield (6f) two weeks ago, coming with a strong late run to get up on the line; other success came over this C&D in March; may have more to offer in the retained blinds; likely player up just 1lb.

Good record on AW but he's 0-10 on turf; lower rated in this sphere but he's been shown his best turf form on good or quicker; Oisin Murphy a good booking but he'll need the ground to dry out.

Close to his last winning mark; finished runner-up in a big-field sprint at Ayr's Western Meeting (5f, Class 5; good to soft) last September; gradually lost his way on AW thereafter, but does return fresh from a break at a realistic level; soft to heavy ground (0-7) presents the risk factor.
