Form & Verdict

More likely than not to miss the break and will again need things to fall right from stall 12; is weighted to his best but hasn't had the breaks since returned to the AW and this four-time Tapeta winner is capable minus Ryan Sexton's 3lb claim.

Form & Verdict

Wins last year came in the spring/autumn on Polytrack, latterly off a 2lb lower mark (ran well over C&D off 5lb higher in January); better effort in first-time cheekpieces last time and the six-week break since looks a bonus for his in-form yard.

Back on the up when running away with an 8.5f handicap here in November, his second run for this yard; similar form at Southwell one week later and his subsequent defeat at Lingfield is easily excused (held up off a slow pace and then forced wide in the straight); should stay this far and he still has some mileage in his mark; big chance.
