Two wins and a second from his last three starts, two of those over 1m2f and the second win at 1m4f; all were on the Polytrack at Lingfield but he's also won once on Tapeta (Wolverhampton last March); needs plenty of respect in the form of his life.

Seen twice as often on the AW but had an impressive win on good to firm last August; does not always fire, for instance in AW Championships race at Newcastle on latest outing, but he looks good on his day and the ease of his 2m win on Kempton AW in February can't be forgotten (6lb higher today); this unusual test might just take his fancy.
