Left disappointing seasonal debut a long way behind when scoring at Thirsk (7f, heavy; first-time blinkers) this month, and his subsequent Pontefract fourth (1m, soft) was perfectly respectable; evidently in prime form but might lose his edge if the ground dries out here.

Stable debut was encouraging enough (1m, AW) but he's not kicked on since, a refusal to settle compromising him (met some late trouble at Thirsk last time); others safer for now.
