Two wins at the end of last year and only 2lb higher than for the second of them; didn't fare at all badly when third over C&D in May, after a break, and a strong contender on that, especially with cheekpieces refitted.

Game winner over Newton Abbot's 3m2f (good) and was running well when unseating late on at Southwell; handles most ground and is entitled to be in the mix.

Disappointed at Uttoxeter this month but had been steadily progressive before that; still on a feasible mark and Bradley Harris takes off 8lb so plenty going for him if the latest effort can be forgiven.

Much improved by a tongue-strap when second at Worcester in May and winning by 19l at Uttoxeter last month; took a heavy fall at the former track latest (held at the time) but can be considered if none the worse for that.
