Won off this mark at Hexham (2m4f, good to soft) in May but he's hard to predict and has been pulled up at Ayr in his last two starts; comes with risks attached and he needs to bounce back to his best.

Sole success in 18 starts (including three points) came at Kelso (2m6f, good) last April; fair third of eight here (2m4f, soft) last month and is back off his winning mark, but he still has stamina to prove and may prefer better ground.

Arguably shaped with more promise than eventual 35l defeat suggests at Kelso (2m5f, soft) last month, after a break, but his win over that C&D last spring was recorded on good ground, and he'd appeal more on a quicker surface.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.
