Form & Verdict
Disappointing favourite when dropped back to 1m2f at Chelmsford last month and now 0-9 on AW but went very close off today's mark over C&D two starts ago, and that form has been franked by the bang-in-form winner since.

Similar to his stablemate in that he seems most effective on the Wolverhampton Tapeta (all three wins there including twice this year); only 2lb above his last winning mark, but something to prove back on Polytrack.
