C&D winner; speedy front-runner who ran as well as he ever has when second of 13, picked off late, in a Class 3 over C&D 17 days ago; 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Career-best form when running away with a Class 4 handicap at Southwell in December but then well held at Newcastle after a 10lb rise; rated 5lb lower on turf and he's proven over 5f on testing ground; could have a say.

Had some smart form on slow ground in his prime and having tumbled down the weights he finally capitalised with an impressive win at Doncaster 16 days ago (5f, soft); up 6lb in a better race but the runner-up at Doncaster has since won well and he has conditions to suit; other pace to deal with but he's more appealing than many.
