In-form 7yo who held on for neck success in conditional jockeys' race at Sedgefield (2m1f, good; first two clear) five days ago, adding to his win there in August; escapes a penalty and has to be feared.

Made it four wins since August (including on good to soft) when scoring over C&D (good) last Thursday; that was a conditionals' handicap so he's unpenalised today (due a 7lb rise); leading claims if conditions suit (unproven on soft ground).

Suited by good ground; bounced back to form in conditional riders' event over C&D last month, beating Encashment (declared 2:53) and taking Uttoxeter record to 2-3; Alex Edwards is able to use his 3lb claim this time, which offsets a rise in the weights; respected.
