10yo who isn't as good as he was, but he's on a reduced mark and the form of his third of six at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) last month reads well; there's slightly less emphasis on stamina here, which could help.

Ended long losing run with an easy win here (3m1f, soft) a fortnight ago; on that evidence his claims shouldn't be dismissed off today's 8lb higher mark, but this 11yo is in a tougher race and is unproven at the trip.
