Three course wins have come over 6f/7f and he ran well to finish fifth of 12 from a wide draw over 7f here six days ago; record over C&D reads 342, though, so he can't be dismissed despite still being 6lb above his last winning mark.

Comfortable success over 7f at Wolverhampton last week, travelling strongly; penalty asks a stiffer question but the latest win was backed up by the clock and he's a leading contender.

Three of his four wins have come over C&D, including the last two; 6lb worse off for a short-head win against the reopposing Mumayaz on his penultimate start; improved on that when scoring again here last Friday; 5lb penalty will make it tougher but still likely to have a say.

Hadn't been in much form but he made the most of his good mark when coming from off the pace to edge home over C&D 13 days ago, having also overcome a troubled passage; obvious claims if as good again off just 2lb higher.
