J: Jason Watson

T: Darryll Holland

Losing run goes back two years and he's been treading water at different trips on the AW this winter but now 6lb lower than when going close on his latest turf run, at Chester in September (extended 7f, heavy); slight concern that this is only his second run on turf in the last 19 months but there's a weights case to be made.

Plenty of evidence that he's a difficult customer but also that he's blessed with sufficient ability to win off this mark, including when rattling home for second at Wolverhampton in February (7f); never going the pace dropped to 5f last time and this trip should prove more suitable; will come good at some point but this looks quite strong for the grade.

Placed on two of his four starts for Ian Williams, most recently when finishing strongly to go very close over 7f at Wolverhampton a week ago (first-time tongue-tie); back in action before 4lb rise takes effect but will probably need a strong pace to aim at and some luck over today's trip.
