Encouraging third in Chester handicap (10.3f, soft) in May; had an excuse (badly hampered) in Royal Ascot Listed race next time but no obvious one when well held in the John Smith's Cup at York since; clear topweight here but has actually been given a chance by the handicapper as he's now 4lb lower than when achieving that Chester placing.
