Took full advantage of a drop in the weights when winning comfortably here (8.6f) three weeks ago, taking his record at the track to 34231; no problem with the return to this trip and a major player despite a 4lb rise.

9.5f AW win last October and runner-up in two of his four runs since, including over this trip; apprentice good value for a 5lb claim in this company but he's been well beaten in two turf runs (both on slower than good); rated 6lb lower on grass as a consequence.
