Notched a fourth win here when going in over C&D last autumn off 4lb lower; having 5lb knocked off by the experienced Joe Leavy won't hurt and this is less competitive.

Consistent last season in handicaps before bagging one with a bit to spare at Thirsk in June (5f, good to firm; 1lb lower); clearly on a dangerous mark if ready for business after his break.

Form & Verdict
Infrequent winner but well handicapped and didn't get the breaks when behind Mellys Flyer at Chelmsford 12 days ago (5f); 2lb drop comes in handy and, whilst mostly seen on the AW these days, he's capable on turf; cheekpieces replaced by new headgear combination.
