Off the mark at the ninth attempt when landing a C&D novice three weeks ago; he didn't have to match his best to win there, though, and he will need more if he is to follow up in a deep handicap.

Yet to get his head in front but he's a reliable sort and posted solid efforts in two Ascot handicaps at 1m6f/1m4f in the summer; he has a 164-day absence to overcome on his Tapeta debut but yard is among the winners and he holds leading form claims.

Form & Verdict

Very useful on AW, winning four of his seven runs in handicaps in this sphere; came from an unpromising position to win comfortably over C&D last month, recording a very impressive final-furlong sectional in the process; not without his kinks but he looks capable of better and is one to take very seriously.

He has won five of his 11 runs in AW handicaps, the latest in good style at Chelmsford in November off 4lb lower; solid efforts in Listed events (including C&D) on his next two starts; looked a bit tricky at Southwell last time but he has the talent to go well back in a handicap.
