Largely consistent this year, with best effort his second in quite valuable series final at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) in March; kept on well for clear second at Hexham (2m4f, good) a fortnight ago; might be boosted by first-time blinkers here; likely contender.

Wants good ground and with a tongue-tie replacing his usual hood he ran out a clearcut winner over slightly shorter at Hexham (4lb lower); remains to be seen whether he'll continue the good work as his profile is very up and down.

Respectable third in similar event over C&D (soft) five weeks ago; remains on a workable mark but there are two negatives, namely his inconsistency this season and underwhelming strike-rate (2-38).

Form & Verdict

Has often flattered to deceive but seemed to enjoy front-running role when clearcut C&D (good) winner under Brian Hughes last month; his resolve might be more sternly tested if this race doesn't pan out so favourably but a 4lb rise ought to be manageable.
