Enhanced his good Doncaster record when leading in the final strides over 6f (good; As If By Chance third) four weeks ago; that form has worked out so a 4lb rise doesn't look too severe.

Two big-field 6f handicap wins this summer, one of them here; running well in defeat in recent starts but if he is to defy this mark it might be on faster ground than he'll encounter today.

Beat 15 rivals to win at Doncaster (6f, good) in May and followed up in commanding fashion in 15-runner handicap over this C&D (good to firm); only third of eight off this increased mark at Newmarket (6f, good), and doubt about slow ground, but he's clearly well suited by a big-field scenario.

He boasts a high level of form on AW, running to an RPR of 105 or more in ten of his 20 AW starts; has left the impression most of his ability is intact on turf this summer and although he has a higher mark in this sphere, he's still a contender of some interest.
