Two near-misses over C&D were followed by a game 7f win at Southwell last week; just missed out back at Southwell on Tuesday (again 7f) when rallying in the final furlong; should make another bold bid.

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.

Off the mark at the 12th attempt in a similar event at Kempton (6f, Polytrack) at the start of the month and put up an even better effort when beaten less than a length into second of 11 in a 0-55 handicap here (7f) eight days ago; strong claims.

Consistent since joining this yard, getting up in the final strides in 6f Kempton classified race eight days ago; not obviously well treated under a 5lb penalty (revised mark 2lb lower) but it's possible she'll kick on now she's got her head in front; return to 7f should suit, too.

First Polytrack run and has a tricky draw but she's been running well in 6f Tapeta races for new yard and can surely win one of these before long; due to run in first-time cheekpieces in 8.00 Southwell last night.

Form & Verdict
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).

A three-time C&D winner but he failed to hit top form for John Wainwright in three 6f Newcastle handicaps this winter; returns from a 94-day break now after a wind op (visor/tongue strap also back on) for his new yard and he can't be ruled out off a reduced mark.

Off the mark at Redcar last April (first-time blinkers) when seeing off 19 rivals over this trip; hasn't matched that form in four runs since and risky, for all he is effective over C&D and should be sharper for his recent return from seven months off.
