6lb out of the handicap today; well beaten in points and his four rules runs, most recently pulled up in first-time cheekpieces (retained) on chase/handicap debut at Ayr (3m, good); however, that latest result doesn't tell anything like the full story as he jumped well in front for a long way before tiring rapidly in the straight; this drop back in trip could be ideal.
