Went up 8lb for winning at Newbury in December (2m4f, soft); far from disgraced off that new mark when 16l-eighth in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham last time; has since been dropped 1lb; one to consider.

Three wins in 2023, taking a particular step forward at Newbury (2m4f, soft) at the end of the year; 8lb higher today and he was never dangerous when 16-1 at Ascot last month, but a running-on third here (2m4f) in October ensures he is not entirely ruled out.

No win since January 2022 but a very solid sequence this season under Bradley Harris, with last six starts including four seconds; wore cheekpieces last three outings; stayed on well for a close third in the Warwick qualifier four weeks ago but he was no match for Goshhowposh on the run-in at Wincanton time before and a 2lb swing should not be enough to turn the tables.

Runner-up three times in a row this autumn and also ran creditably when upped to 2m7f/3m on last two outings, second again at Wincanton on latest; ridden in all those five races by Bradley Harris; wore cheekpieces last two; while needing respect for consistency, some improvement is needed for a first handicap win.
