Began the season with two heavy defeats but he bounced back to form when scoring at Redcar a fortnight ago (1m6f, good to firm; cheekpieces back on); consistency hasn't been his strong suit so no guarantee he'll be in the same form; non-runner at Thirsk yesterday.

Both turf wins on good ground, at 1m2f and 1m4f; ran up against one ahead of his mark when a remote second at Ripon (1m6f, heavy) last week but overall form for this yard doesn't suggest she's about to end a losing run.
