Back in the grove with wins over C&D and at Southwell in December; didn't get a race run to suit his hold-up style when fifth back at Southwell last time and treated as if still in form.

All turf and AW wins at 1m, most recently when back to form returned to grass at Redcar (good to firm) last month; rare to see him over 1m2f, though, and despite a respectable second of six at Redcar in September he needs to raise his game much higher in this company.

Form & Verdict
Two wins for Hugo Palmer last year, latterly over C&D in November; good third at Southwell and Wolverhampton on next two outings and a slow start provides an excuse for a lesser run back at Wolverhampton just after Christmas; thereabouts.

His two wins have come at 1m on turf (good to firm) and Tapeta; placed four times since his last success in November but he's lost his way at Doncaster (1m) and here (7f) in last two starts; now returns to much quicker ground but he needs to bounce back near his best.

Pulled up in two hurdles last summer but he returned to the Flat for new yard with a Newcastle win (1m) last month followed by a close call at Wolverhampton (8.6f); his progress stalled when a well-held fifth on Tapeta last time but he still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form and his first win came on Polytrack; dangerous if he can bounce back at this new trip.

Just one win to his name but he regularly ran to an RPR in the 80s through the winter and his penultimate start at Ripon (1m, soft) wasn't bad in the context of this race; disconcerting to see him dropped to this grade but no surprise were he to prove too classy.
