Beat 17 rivals at Navan in October (5.5f, yielding; well backed) before finding Listed company and/or heavy ground too much to handle at Doncaster three weeks later; left Chris Timmons after and made a pleasing start for his new yard when third at Newcastle six weeks ago, far from disgraced in trying to concede weight to two rivals who have both won since (5f); dropped 3lb for his troubles and he's interesting back at 6f.

Two bits of fair form over 5f at Newcastle before Christmas, both those races working out well; not at all the same proposition when upped to 6f at Kempton on latest start, pulling hard early and never involved, but the earlier form gives him good claims in this company back at 5f on Tapeta.
