Front-runner; made all in a C&D handicap last September off 3lb lower; weakened only late on here 17 days ago on his reappearance and could last longer today; this doesn't look overloaded with pace but he'll still need a career best to come out on top.

Had plenty to spare when winning a 6f handicap at Newcastle in November, meeting trouble in running but sweeping through to lead late on; never dangerous back there four weeks ago but this race looks full of pace and he should be arriving on the scene late.

Conditions to suit and he bounced back to form with a come-from-behind success over C&D eight weeks ago; met plenty of trouble on that occasion and looks good value for the 3lb rise; won this race off the same mark 12 months ago; one of four runners for the stable; would be suited by a strong pace.

7-15 on the AW and 0-7 on turf, albeit he has been beaten less than a length on three occasions; 3lb rise for latest narrow Southwell success puts him back on a career-high mark, so he will need to be at his very best to defy it.
