Formerly tricky to win with but he's become a winning machine this winter, landing five of his last eight starts (placed in the other three); hit with a 9lb rise for a C&D win 12 days ago though and he'll need to step forward again to complete the hat-trick.

Progressive 4yo who has won four times on AW since September including a comfortable success over C&D two weeks ago; 5lb higher here but he still looks feasibly treated and could continue on the upgrade; key player.
