0-5 and again looked an awkward ride when in contention at Doncaster (1m, good) in June last time, finishing a close third; however, there's every chance he'll again be thereabouts; stable won this last year; the blinkers worn the last twice are left off today.

Won on reappearance at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in April and returned to form with close second at Newmarket (1m, good) in June; unproven on slow ground; could have more to offer at this trip and he's one to consider.

Finished 2l behind Leadenhall when second of nine at Haydock (1m, good to soft) last month and is now 2lb worse off, but he has since won with real authority at Doncaster (1m, good); 1lb well in under his penalty and a major player.

J: Ben Curtis

Admirably consistent in handicaps but maybe anchored by a 5lb rise when coming up short when raised to 1m2f at Chester; perhaps 1m is ideal and, although now high in the weights, he should be in the thick of it.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last year (good to soft/good, including here) and he's run pretty well in defeat in these cheekpieces the last twice, most recently third of five to Pearl Eye over C&D (heavy); each-way claims.
