Form & Verdict
Two C&D runs in 2022 yielded a second and a win (both on soft); he had dropped in the weights prior to an AW win in November; promising return from break at Newcastle 12 days ago and still feasibly handicapped; drawn furthest away from the stands' rail but good claims if that isn't a negative.

Placed in four runs since returning to the track in April, including C&D; beaten off a 1lb lower mark on each of those occasions though so he will need extra to take this.

Well held at Nottingham (5f, good) last time, but had run well when third of 11 there the time before; back off his last winning mark and very well suited by a soft surface (all three turf wins on heavy), but may not be well drawn; stable also runs Jack Of Clubs.

Two wins on AW at Newcastle this year and he returned to turf with a creditable third behind Mehmo over C&D last month; did best of the closers in that race and that took his course form figures to 133; dangerous off 1lb lower than last time.
