8yo who has won three times on Tapeta (1m4f-1m6f) this year and he chased home a major improver at Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) last time; has won on fast ground at this track in the past and he should go well again back on turf.

Form & Verdict

He had been banging at the door prior to a narrow win at Chelmsford (extended 1m5f) 13 days ago; followed up in good style at the same track (2m) last week and he is effectively only 3lb higher today; he has run well for today's rider in the past, including over C&D, and he should make a bold bid for the hat-trick.
