Runner-up in two of his first three handicaps before winning one at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) on latest outing, about to be challenged by Broomfields Cave when that rival fell at the last; up 5lb whereas Broomfields Cave has gone up 4lb; firmly in the mix.

Improved form since switched to handicaps this season, including when rallying to prevail by a neck at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good; first-time tongue-tie, kept since) in June; fair third when 11-10 over C&D six weeks ago, which he needs to improve on in today's first-time headgear.

Very well suited by this C&D and good ground but returned from break with a disappointing effort (albeit without usual cheekpieces) three weeks ago and, even if back on song, probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

Dual chase winner who seems ideally suited by good or quicker ground; struggled over hurdles in first two runs for this yard but was a rallying second back over fences at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm) last month; this step back up in trip is a positive and he has possibilities if the rain stays away; due to be 2lb higher in future.
