Dual winner at Stratford last summer (2m6f/3m2f), latterly off today's mark; drops in grade after respectable fourth at Wincanton (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day and will be suited by the forecast good ground here; high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Latest two wins have come over C&D (four ran, made all in each); ran well when third to Scarpia at Worcester most recently and has also won on soft ground; dangerous if able to dictate but vulnerable off this mark.

T: Kim Bailey

Usually not seen on worse than good to soft and although he won a soft-ground novice in 2020, he was well beaten when trying to come from the rear on soft here on latest outing (often front-runs); that's two modest runs in a row, with wind surgery (his second) in between; others preferred.
