In good form for new yard this term, notably winning at Brighton (1m, good), and is better than latest result suggests (had no luck in running); remains on career-high mark but hard to dismiss.

In the form of his life lately, always travelling well and winning with a good bit in hand for Jack Doughty at Bath over the weekend; his record round here is mixed at best (hung left a couple of times) but his claims are obvious under the penalty.

Inconsistent entire who's done most winning on Tapeta; was very easy to back over C&D last weekend but won a weak race easily and having promising 7lb claimer Jack Doughty taking over off a 4lb higher mark won't hurt; is fine on any ground.
