Form & Verdict
Went close at Southwell (6f, Tapeta) last month and caught the eye of the stewards when fourth (behind three of these) over C&D 13 days ago; that took his record to 0-23, though, so he wouldn't be certain to fare any better this time.

Four-time winner here (three over this trip) who ended a long losing run when landing an amateur riders' event at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) last time; 5lb higher and wide draw not ideal, but is usually dropped out anyway so could figure if they go quick enough up front; stable also runs Yaahobby.
