Two 1m4f wins last spring and he's now only 2lb higher than for his comprehensive Newmarket success on the second occasion; creditable fifth in the November Handicap when last seen; can go well but he would appeal more over further.

Improver since upped to 1m4f this winter, winning three times (including two over C&D) and going 20lb up the weights; was again free enough back under Billy Loughnane last time and this mark should be within range if he settles after a short break.

On a long losing sequence but he was pretty smart on turf/AW at his best for the Johnston stable and showed enough to think he retains a good chunk of his ability when returning from a year off to finish fifth of 11 in 1m3f Windsor handicap in October; has joined a stable which excels with new recruits.

Better on the AW (6-14) than turf and boasts a solid record round here; there's nothing to suggest he's best caught fresh, though, and he resumes on a career-high mark, having been nudged up another 1lb for last October's C&D third.
