Form & Verdict

12l win at Leicester (1m2f, soft) last time; given the testing ground it's possible the margin of victory flatters him, but a 7lb rise could have been worse and he's also effective on good/good to firm; has to be respected.

C&D effort five weeks ago can be forgiven (first run for 193 days and he is a tricky ride for an apprentice) but he will probably need them to go very hard up front to have a winning chance kept to 1m.

Well beaten on final outing last year and no return to peak form on last month's reappearance at Haydock; however, he may have needed that latest run and he won four times last year at up to 1m2f (including on good to firm ground); not discounted.

He's perhaps not straightforward and he failed to shine on last month's reappearance, but he may have needed that run and was progressive towards the end of last season, with two wins (1m2f, good/soft; including C&D); William Buick is booked and he's a possible contender.
