Just fair form in three runs over 7f but he retains potential having been short of room when a one-paced third of 12 at Haydock (good) three weeks ago; should be at least as effective over this longer trip and moves into handicaps on a workable mark considering his fairly useful pedigree; shortlisted.

J: Robert Havlin

Used to pull too hard but the switch to sprinting, and especially the move to AW, has had a huge impact, winning his last three starts in the manner of a top-class performer; lumbered with a 13lb rise for the latest success but a greater concern may be whether he can be use his energy and potent change of gear as efficiently over today's stiff 6f.

Has looked a natural in two runs since switched to AW, winning over 6f at Lingfield in November and looking one to keep firmly onside with a stylish C&D win 12 days ago; 5lb higher in his hat-trick bid but he looks the type to take higher rank on AW.
