Smart sprinter in his prime; in steady decline now but handicapped accordingly and recent efforts have been perfectly respectable; could have a say if first-time cheekpieces give him a lift.

Did well last season when cheekpieces were added, winning at Redcar in August and ending his campaign with a fine second to Wobwobwob in the Ayr Silver Cup; no headgear for his return and this perhaps not his day.
