Form & Verdict

Looked in need of last month's return to action and duly stepped forward with a smooth C&D win (his second) 15 days ago; picked up well off a slow pace on that occasion and a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

His last four wins have come on the Wolverhampton Tapeta and he's run well to finish placed over this C&D the last twice, going close in second most recently; there's every chance he'll be bang there once more.

Better known as a Tapeta specialist, though having met trouble he finished only a length behind Awtaad Prince when fourth of nine over C&D in February; again ran into trouble when third of ten at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) three weeks ago; drawn wide but still a player granted a bit more luck.
