Losing spell goes back to Listed win almost two years ago; modest fourth over 1m2f here most recently; went close over 1m1f at Hamilton (soft) the time before and has each-way hopes back at this distance.

33-1 for the 20-runner Lincoln at Doncaster (1m) on reappearance six weeks ago but won it comfortably from Lattam, coming smoothly from off the pace; 7lb higher today; chief concern is probably that all his turf runs for this yard last term were on soft and all his three career wins have been on soft, but 1m1f is no problem and he had plenty of form on good or firmer in 2021 and 2022; has to be considered.

Won comfortably at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last September on fourth stable start and he remains well treated on his old form; he ran pretty well on his final two starts last season but needs something extra if he's to win this competitive handicap on his return to action.

Off the mark for this yard when coming from off the pace to win a Goodwood handicap in September (1m1f, soft); left behind by an impressive winner at Hamilton last time but still ran creditably; more will be required to win this competitive handicap.

Form & Verdict

Below par on heavy/AW the last twice, taking record since 2yo days to 0-9; however, has become favourably treated and can't be ruled out, especially if the ground is soft (has form figures of 112 on that surface); sole handicap win came off 6lb higher.
