Very solid record (form figures 2211) switched to fences last season, with the wins gained at Lingfield (2m7f, heavy) and Sandown (3m, soft); another 4lb higher today but he has more to offer and should be capable of scoring off that mark before long, perhaps today.

Very solid record (form figures 2211) since switched to fences, the wins gained at Lingfield (2m7f, heavy) and this track (3m, soft; gamely); now 5lb out of weights in a better race and returns to forecast faster ground but his progressive profile is a selling point.
