Two wins this season and close third at Beverley (1m2f, heavy) last month; latest run was also on heavy when below form at Ayr (off his highest mark for a long time) but he's one to consider.

Close third at Beverley (1m2f, heavy) last month and won comfortably at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft) next time; only fourth of seven when unpenalised back at Hamilton (8.3f, soft) last Monday and a new 6lb higher mark has now kicked in, but he's not ruled out in view of his penultimate form.

Form & Verdict

Back in better form this month and was an unlucky second at Ayr (1m, good to soft) on Friday, as he would likely have won but for meeting some trouble; great chance off same mark granted better fortune.

Good return from a break when second over 8.6f here under Lewis Edmunds last month; hung left under pressure under a 7lb claimer when failing to build on that at Newcastle a week later but he has a rail on his inside this time and Edmunds is also back in the plate.

Form & Verdict

Held on narrowly under William Pyle at Ayr (7f, good to soft) on Thursday; now 7lb higher (includes penalty) and rider cannot use 5lb claim this time, so it looks a harder task; however, has won over C&D and is very hard to dismiss in current form.

Brighton regular - successful over 1m there last May; struggled for form on turf through August, September, and October, so returns from a 155-day absence with plenty to prove, not least his AW prowess (0-12).
