Disappointed in early March and is now 0-8 over fences but was second twice in February, more notably when beaten only by a head over C&D on first occasion; can cope with any lingering juice in the ground and has obvious claims if back on song after 75-day break.

He's a 12-race maiden but he went close at Southwell (2m4f, good) two starts ago and bumped into a progressive winner when 5l second at Sedgefield (2m5f, good) last Thursday; there can be optimism he'll be okay on the forecast good to soft ground and every chance he'll be bang there.
