Won handicaps at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) and Doncaster (3m, heavy) before pulling up at Kelso after a break of just one week; now 10lb higher than for his last win (by 18l) but this refreshed 8yo can make his presence felt.

Has won four of his six starts for this yard and never more impressive than last time at Catterick (3m, soft), for all that he beat just two rivals (the runner-up was a penalised last-time-out winner); 6lb rise asks a question but he has to enter the reckoning.
