Cartmel specialist who is returning from a 220-day absence; game winner (by a nose) at the popular Lakes venue last August, before pulling up here in October; most effective over 2m1f and will presumably have other summer objectives; safer to look elsewhere.

Much improved in recent starts, winning in style at Perth and defying a 10lb rise when scrambling home at Market Rasen nine days ago; another 4lb might not stop him but both of those were on good ground and not certain to be as effective on slower going; best when held up.

Productive over hurdles and fences last year, and has seemingly returned to the Flat in fine fettle; comfortably got the better of the reopposing Eaux De Vie at Kempton (1m3f, Class 6, 14-1) a fortnight ago, so could confirm that superiority on 3lb worse terms.

Reportedly aided by first-time cheekpieces when battling on well to open account at Kelso (2m1f, soft) in October, his sixth start over fences; not one to rely upon heavily but can be excused last month's Doncaster defeat (always on back foot after bad jumping error at first fence).
