Progressive; successful twice over C&D (good to firm/heavy) this summer and went in again at Beverley (extended 1m) under Ben Curtis 13 days ago; only nudged up another 2lb for that narrow success and another bold show is likely.

Ex-Irish; ran his most encouraging race since coming to Britain when second at Beverley (extended 1m, good) in a first-time visor (retained) last Saturday, looking unlucky after being denied a clear run in the home straight until the final 110yds; player if showing up in similar form.
