Four course wins over the past two winters, three of them over 7.2f; has little wiggle room off this mark (4lb higher than when last successful) and was below par last time but gives his trainer, who also saddles Soi Dao, a decent hand.

Mark unchanged from his Lingfield run of last week, a fifth second place in his last six outings (switched 1f out but not unlucky); becoming frustrating, but return to 7f no issue and he's gone close here this autumn.

Bar one blip (switch to front-running backfired) has proven consistent since returning from a big layoff, running into the places over C&D the last twice; eased another 1lb but likely needs to find a bit extra.
