Strong traveller whose four chase wins, including at Hexham latest (2m, good), have all been gained coming late from rear; back above a winning mark but only just, and good chance this will be run to suit.

Despite racing freely he still went close at Sedgefield (2m1f, heavy) last month and, given his running style, these less taxing conditions should benefit him.

His two career wins have come in his last six starts; does seem a better horse over further, however, and being out of the weights is not ideal.
