Form & Verdict
He has never been prolific but he has run several good races in defeat this winter and his latest close fourth at Wolverhampton was backed up by the Topspeed figure; unplaced in five course runs but two of them were fine efforts in much better races; one to consider.

6yo who has been in good form this winter and he justified favouritism over C&D last Thursday; was eased down for that comfortable success and he's a big player again under a penalty.

All three wins have come on Tapeta (5f) during the winter; her last success was 11 months ago but she's reached the frame in last four starts including when third at Wolverhampton (classified event) ten days ago; should get a decent pace back in a handicap and she has each-way claims again.
