Revealed in a new light on his handicap debut at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) last month, starting favourite in 11-runner conditionals' race and coming from the rear to go ahead on run-in, as the first two drew 10l clear; 9lb higher today but may well have more to give.

0-9 under rules after soundly beaten third at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) latest but that was still a fair run and he was a good second at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) the time before; also ran well on heavy ground in December; this might not take much winning and he's on the shortlist.

Dead-heated at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) on Boxing Day and would likely have won outright but for straying off a true line; now 2-2 in this grade and remains well treated on peak form; shortlisted.

Overall strike-rate of 1-32 but his win came off an 11lb higher mark early last year (2m3f, good) and the new visor triggered a return to form at Huntingdon (2m4f, good); has to be of interest.
