Yet to fire for this yard but he's dropped in the weights and looks to retain some ability; not well drawn as things panned out at Southwell five weeks ago and better is likely today.

Caught the eye at Newcastle last month and confirmed that promise when overcoming traffic issue to win a 6f handicap five days later; not beaten far into fourth having travelled strongly in a better race last week; should get a good pace to aim at back at 5f and he's one to take very seriously.
