Off the mark with a decisive success at Plumpton (2m4f maiden, soft) and was well backed to do so; up 8lb for that and he's come up short in his previous handicaps off lower marks.

Two of his three wins have been here, the latest a C&D chase on soft ground in January off just 4lb lower (narrowly); again went close here last month and it was a fairly deep handicap in which he struggled last time at Ascot; has won on good.
