Last month's C&D win came off just 1lb lower and his subsequent soft-ground effort can be ignored (almost came down when clipping heels 2f out); should do much better.

Better since upped to this trip, with a win and a second to his name in two runs at Wolverhampton in March; both came under aggressive tactics, though, and stall 14 may mean he has to drop in again as he did for a lesser show on latest start.
