Two of his three wins have come here (5f/6f) and is 2lb lower than for the most recent; has hinted at a return to form on a couple of occasions lately, but he may just need the extra furlong around here these days.

2-2 over C&D as a 2yo when trained by Archie Watson; made a successful debut for this yard at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) last summer, but although 0-10 since he has hinted at a revival as when a close fifth of nine at Beverley (5f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) this month; interesting back here, but could have been drawn better.

Often a front-runner who has dropped 7lb lower then when successful at Ripon (5f, good) last September, but that his only win in his last 34 starts and recents efforts don't suggest that is about to change; stable also runs Birkenhead.
