Soundly beaten at Newcastle on New Year's Day but that was his first crack at 2m and he failed to settle; prior to that he stayed on for third over 1m4f here and today's trip could prove ideal; possible player.

Losing run is mounting up and he never figured the last twice (1m4f/1m3f); however, may benefit from this step back up in trip; 0-4 on AW but is attractively weighted off current mark.

Without a win since April 2022 but has made the frame nine consecutive times, including to Ocean Heights over C&D in December; went down by only a neck at Wolverhampton on latest start three weeks ago and he's likely to be in the thick of things yet again.
