Winless beyond 7f but has twice come really close to putting that right since the summer, including over C&D; 6lb above his highest winning mark at present, but chance increases the more conditions dry out.

Strike-rate of just 2-32 does him a disservice, having only just failed twice since June's belated first success on turf at Nottingham (8.5f, good to firm) off 8lb lower; entitled to be thereabouts once more.

Multiple turf winner but 0-16 on the AW so recent defeats over 7f on sand, although they haven't been too serious, shouldn't be taken as evidence of a decline; has won on soft and now 2lb lower than a 1m Pontefract win in September so has possibilities back at this trip.

Just behind Devilwala when a staying-on fourth here in June (soft), but hasn't backed that up; nephew of two Listed winners at 1m-plus, however, so this first experiment over further than 7f isn't without logic.
