Down in the weights and back to form with a bang when landing course win number seven (six at 1m) over 1m2f 10 days ago; pulled 6l clear so is well treated under a 4lb penalty (new mark due to be 3lb higher) but that was a 0-65 and this is a better race.

Four of his six wins have come on Tapeta (6f-8.6f) and latest was off 7lb higher last spring; mixed results in his three runs this year but he didn't get any luck at Southwell (1m) last time and was a close third at Newcastle on penultimate run; will need a good pace back at this trip but he's not ruled out.
