Having dropped down the weights he returned to form when third at Catterick (5f, good to firm) last time; another 2lb lower here and this two-time Tapeta winner should be suited by today's stiffer test; possible contender.

Five of his six wins have come on the AW, one of them here; held up off a strong pace when close up here 16 days ago but he can race prominently; closely matched with Moon Flight and Dark Kestrel on that form; fighting chance.

Recorded his fifth AW win when scoring at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) on his reappearance but he failed to back that up at Windsor 18 days ago; that took his turf record to 2-40 and he has something to prove again after that 11l defeat.

Course winner who continues to drop down the weights and was a fair third of seven at Pontefract last month on his second start for this yard; however, soundly beaten at Ripon since and others provide more solid options.

Form & Verdict

Has a patchy profile and was a soundly beaten fourth of eight at Chelmsford (5f, AW) last time, but before that he won over C&D on his AW debut and that form has worked out well; may have more to offer now back here.

Has been unable to recapture his best Irish form and has to produce more than he's managed on turf the last twice; however, he ran a big race from the front over C&D on last month's reappearance and is now 4lb lower; represents last year's winning yard and no surprise to see a bold show now back here.
