Handy sort who wasn't at his best in the AW Vase Sprint at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) 13 days ago (hung right off the home bend), but had won three of his four starts prior to that including over C&D last month; still 5lb higher than for that success, but still much respected back here.

J: Brandon Wilkie

T: Hugo Palmer

Comes here in top form, winning three of his last four starts (beaten a short-head when clear second the other time); possible 7f is his optimum trip though and he's 5lb higher than for his Southwell win 19 days ago; connections also represented by Prince Of Zenda.

Form & Verdict
Fine strike-rate on AW but, although yet to win on grass, is equally effective on it; wasn't at best in first-time visor last time and, although cheekpieces refitted, he may again find one or two too good.

Has a good strike-rate on the AW (6-12) and is 3-5 over C&D, but twice held (including back here) since winning at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) in November; down 1lb and needs to bounce back, though that is entirely possible at this venue.

Looked to have more in hand than the 1l winning margin suggests when making a successful start for the Mick Appleby yard over 7f at Lingfield 13 days ago, shooting clear at the top of the straight before his lead was reduced late on; a 4lb rise doesn't look enough to stop one who scored off much higher marks earlier in his career.
