Took a while to get off the mark but ended 2023 on a sharp upward curve, winning 7f handicaps at Redcar and Newcastle; carried on the good work when coming from off the pace to win a Newcastle handicap 32 days ago, form boosted by the third since; 2lb rise not beyond him and there's plenty in his favour today.

Finished last year in cracking form, winning at Redcar (7f, heavy) and then over C&D, before being just held after rearing at the start back over C&D when last seen in November; up another 4lb for this reappearance but makes the shortlist given how well he acts here.

Maiden (0-15); went clear but couldn't sustain her effort when reeled in by Elettaria at Carlisle (7f, good to firm) last month; her subsequent Catterick run can be excused - stumbled badly early - so, on slightly better terms, she'd have a chance of reversing those earlier placings.
