J: Alistair Rawlinson

T: Rebecca Menzies

No win in his first 15 starts under both codes but he came good with an emphatic success over C&D 18 days ago and backed that up with a close second at Southwell (1m6f); still has potential as a stayer in this sphere and he's strongly respected back up in trip.

Very much had the run of things up front when making all for his career breakthrough over 2m at Newcastle last week, but he's 1lb well in with the penalty and has less to prove than most of these.

Doesn't win too often (2-30), but has slipped down the weights and, in the main, has fared broadly okay (twice placed over 2m) since returning to the AW; his most recent Newcastle effort wasn't his best though, so he has some work to do with Eagle's Realm; a possible.
