Without a win since January 2021 and he hasn't really been threatening this winter, especially so at Doncaster most recently when the first beaten (3m, soft); wouldn't be the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Won two of his last three starts and had little difficulty in conceding plenty of weight to a subsequent winner at Huntingdon recently (2m7f, good to soft); return to 2m4f raises a question but he travelled strongly last time and may not be dependent on a test of stamina; respected.

Confirmed he has an abundance of stamina when runner-up over 3m5f on heavy at Bangor (Haute Estime 3l behind) and then won the Tim Maloney at Haydock (3m1f handicap, soft) pretty much as he liked; that was off a career-high mark and now up another 8lb, but his overall record over fences is hard to knock.
