Stayed on well to open account for Neil Mulholland at Worcester (2m7f, soft) in July but was sold out of that stable for £4,500 after last month's disappointing chase debut and has a point to prove on this stable debut.

Won at 12-1 on his stable debut at Hexham (2m7f, soft) in October but he's been well held in both subsequent runs and latest was behind Sanosuke over C&D 18 days ago; has something to prove again and he needs to jump better than last time.

Dual soft-ground winner at 2m7f, including at Hexham on his penultimate start; well below that level back over that C&D on heavy latest; best RPRs have been recorded on slower ground than forecast but could still be an each-way player if bouncing back.
