Kept on to justify favouritism at Hexham (2m4f, heavy; from a 5lb lower mark) in November; took a nasty tumble at Ayr next time, and has broadly failed to get the momentum going since, pulling up (over 3m) latest; something to prove confidence-wise in newly applied cheekpieces.

Kept on to win at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in November on second handicap start; looked to be staying on from the rear when slipping up before two out here (extended 2m4f) next time and showed he's still in form when stepped up to 3m at Wetherby (soft) last time; less exposed than a lot of these; considered.

Kept on to win at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in November on second handicap start and, although he still had plenty to do, he was making headway when slipping up before two out at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) last time; today's step up in trip could be right up his street and he's firmly in calculations.

Sole win came over C&D (2m4f, soft) in April (front pair 3l clear) and also produced a career best when runner-up over C&D on her return to action last month; well below that level at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) latest but has the ability to have a big say back here, if able to shrug off that effort.
