Better known as a Tapeta specialist, though having met trouble he finished only a length behind Awtaad Prince when fourth of nine over C&D in February; again ran into trouble when third of ten at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) three weeks ago; drawn wide but still a player granted a bit more luck.

Despite having fallen 1lb below his last winning mark he showed little on his stable debut at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) in February; drops into a 0-60 for the first time and this is only his second go over this far (third in the first at Kempton); may do better.

Four-time course winner (three on Tapeta) whose losing run is now up to 12, but he has often run with credit and should appreciate the return here after finishing fourth of ten at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) last time; more than capable of making an impact back down in grade if getting a good pace to aim at.
