Well treated on C&D form up to last June; however, he was below par on the Flat in the second half of last year then failed to threaten on three hurdle runs; may be best watched on this return from a break.

Suited by ground softer than good; took well to first-time blinkers at Thirsk (7f) most recently, keeping on for half-length win; possibilities in the retained blinds provided he stays this longer distance.

Left disappointing seasonal debut a long way behind when scoring at Thirsk (7f, heavy; first-time blinkers) this month, and his subsequent Pontefract fourth (1m, soft) was perfectly respectable; evidently in prime form but might lose his edge if the ground dries out here.
