High in the weights with him 6lb above the figure he defied at Carlisle (1m3f) in August and that perhaps a factor in his two subsequent defeats; continues to run well though and unlikely to be far away.

In career-best form on turf in recent months, most notably when clearcut winner at Carlisle (1m3f, good to firm) two starts ago; also suited by this surface and must be considered in current mood.

Got off the mark at Southwell in February and back in top form on last two starts when second at Leicester (again under Laura Pearson) and winning an amateurs' race at Carlisle, all over 1m3f or 1m4f; has 5lb penalty but the ground may pose the biggest question, as his only run on softer than good was low-level form early in career.

Won first five starts after visor fitted in February, including twice over C&D; has proved that he can be effective outside of 0-50 classified company and may have had excuses when only third of seven (sent off at 1-2) last week but this looks a tough race in which to bounce back.
