Useful at 7f and 1m on his day; well treated now and although his season has had its rocky moments for a new yard he should appreciate being back on good ground and in an easier grade than for much of the year.

Has enjoyed a good campaign and gained compensation for being demoted to second at York (7f) when making all in the mud at Catterick (6f) last month; faded out of it at Doncaster a couple of weeks ago but he's capable of bouncing back; won here earlier in his career.

Made the running for his three most recent wins, at 7f and 1m, the latter on this track last month; unable to lead and had a resounding defeat since but has the rail draw and can give it a good shot.

His form has been in and out this season but there have been plenty of good runs and he won at Thirsk (1m, good) last month; kept on well for third there (7f, good) two starts ago and this step back up in trip seems a likely positive; in the shake-up if he's on a going day.

Reached new heights for this yard since a visor was fitted, winning first two starts (both 7f, good to firm) and losing nothing in defeat at Brighton in August; thought not to have been quite right when beaten before the new 1m trip could be blamed at Leicester and considered on the earlier runs.
