Plenty of short-priced defeats to go with his sole win but his two C&D seconds in recent times give him claims, with any rain likely to work in his favour; goes on the shortlist.

Suffered significant dip in form last season but returned from ten-week break with 5l win over C&D (good to soft) last month and remains well handicapped after a 3lb rise; will have something to prove if the ground turns soft but, otherwise, has strong claims.
