Consistent maiden who arrives on the back of an excellent second of 13 in 1m2f Nottingham handicap 20 days ago; that form is working out well so another bold showing is on the cards nudged up only 1lb.

His breakthrough win at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) had been coming and it was quite comfortable in the end; 3lb rise is fine but softer ground might not be, having disappointed on good to soft and twice withdrawn due to similar conditions.
