All wins at 7f and 1m, the latest two on Newcastle Tapeta; rarely runs over 6f and well held in AW claimer on latest attempt at the trip last autumn; left David O'Meara for 12,000gns in October; usually wears headgear but not today; up against it.

Usually seen over further, but successfully dropped to this trip on stable debut at Wolverhampton (Tapeta) in December and is now 2lb lower; not at his best the last twice, though, so needs to bounce back; yard also runs Billyjoh.

Can't blame the 1m trip for his below-par run at Lingfield a fortnight ago but won off today's mark when dropped back to 6f for stable debut at Wolverhampton in December and refitted visor (worn regularly during time with David O'Meara) might give him a boost today.

Record over C&D reads 122 and he has continued to run consistently well on turf since debuting for this yard in June, winning with plenty in hand from three rivals at Ffos Las (6f, good to soft) in September; a player if still in the same form after three months off, despite a 7lb higher mark.
