Getting on for two years since the last of his nine wins but he has hinted in recent starts that he isn't a back number just yet; not sure to benefit from stepping back up to 6f though.

This winter's evidence suggests he has a small sprint in him on AW and he wasn't disgraced back up to 6f at Southwell on Saturday; didn't quite get home having looked a big threat 1f out though and he could prove vulnerable to stronger stayers here; blinkers now tried (has worn cheekpieces in eight of his last ten runs).
