Placed on consecutive 7f Tapeta starts last month and didn't run badly over 6f here a week ago but this move back up to 1m is not sure to suit and it's now over three years since his last win; swaps blinkers for first-time visor; tongue-tie also fitted for first time.

Caught the attention of the stewards on second start at Chelmsford (6f; last of four) in February; posted a low-key performance when upped-in-trip (200-1) next time; this looks more suitable, but whether or not the newly applied tongue-tie can yield improvement is questionable.
