2-10 for Roger Varian, the latter win at this track (1m4f) last October; just 1lb higher today, as he has not shone in his four runs (Tapeta) for current yard; back on Polytrack but others are more persuasive.

His form is very mixed and he was tailed off at York (1m4f, good to soft) last time; however, he won early this year on his first two starts - over C&D and at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) - and this is his first run on Polytrack since; he's therefore worth a second look.
