Form & Verdict
Ultra-consistent sort who has only once finished out of the frame in nine starts since winning at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) last summer; closely matched with Sandy Paradise on last month's Wolverhampton running (7f, Tapeta) and seems sure to run his race again.

All three successes have come at Wolverhampton, including over 7f last time where he just got the better of Sandy Paradise; only 2lb higher and had previously finished a close third in an amateur riders' event over this C&D on his return from 163 days off; could go well.

Three wins on the AW last year including at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) in November and at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) in December; modest effort on return from three months off at the latter track three weeks ago (has gone well fresh in the past) and needs to bounce back from that.

Three AW wins last year, including at this track (7f) off this mark; the handicapper has had his measure since that win but this is weaker than he's used to and a revival could be forthcoming; cheekpieces, in which he's 1-1, replace a visor today.
