1-22 for this yard (last two seasons) with the win on the Newmarket July course last summer; 3lb lower today and well treated on form as recent as end of September; needs to bounce back from a last of 12 on reappearance three weeks ago but that was his AW debut; needs a second look.

Won three consecutive 7f races in late 2021 (AW) and on reappearance last year, in a big field at York (good to soft; under Harry Davies, claiming 7lb); never came near to repeating the form after but is weighted to go well if fresh for the fray.

Five of eight wins on good to soft and soft, the last twice over 7f; on a losing run but he often takes part in more competitive races than this and is 7lb lower than when running creditably in the Lincoln last March; well held on the AW in January but has better prospects back on turf.

Best effort this year when swooping late to win a Racing League event at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; does not look overburdened with a 5lb rise and Amie Waugh's claim helps offset that anyway; yet to show his form at 6f but this stiff track should suit and he's capable of another big run.
