Won in good style at Hereford (3m1f, good) on November 6; only fifth when unpenalised at Market Rasen (2m7f, good to soft) last Thursday and his new 6lb higher mark has now kicked in, but it wasn't a bad run last time and today's forecast better ground may well be a plus; capable of big run.

Safely held in first two handicaps but her C&D fifth in May was arguably a more encouraging run than eventual 20l defeat might suggest; another 2lb lower today and still has low mileage; not ruled out.
