Had a good spell with two close calls and a win in December but he's lost his way at Lingfield (1m4f/1m2f) in last two runs; only 1lb higher than for last win but he needs to get back on track.

C&D winner last March; he has added three 1m2f wins at Chelmsford since and recorded another personal best when second of 14 at that track five weeks ago; latest 2lb rise means he'll need another step forward to win.

Emphatic success off 5lb lower last weekend, in second-time blinkers, took his C&D record to 3-7; likely player kept to ideal conditions, provided he copes with this grade (raced mainly at a lower level).

Had 7f form on Polytrack in Ireland but sole win in 1m maiden at Killarney last summer; weakened over 1m2f and 1m on AW for new yard, so it's reasonable to have another go at 7f; it's too soon to rule him out with cheekpieces added.
