Back to winning form at Kempton (6f, Polytrack) in April, but that his only success in his last 21 starts and needs to bounce back from a modest effort at Southwell (6f, Tapeta) 13 days ago; drawn higher than ideal.

In good form last month, winning a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton and following up over C&D in fine style; only fourth at Southwell (6f) in his hat-trick bid, racing closer to the stands' rail than the three to beat him; should make another bold bid back at 5f.

Struggled for Christine Dunnett last year but he's quickly got back in the groove for his former trainer (off a much-reduced mark), wining twice over C&D last month; outpaced at halfway here 11 days ago (behind a couple of today's rivals) and although he stayed on late in the day, the leaders were out of sight; Oisin Murphy booked but others perhaps better treated now.
