Ran an improving sort close on his reappearance over C&D in February, but didn't build on it next time; back to winning form at Thirsk (5f, good to firm) last month and has twice run with credit off this mark since (in cheekpieces last time), but he needs a bit more.

Form & Verdict
Won the 3yo Dash on Derby Day last season off a 1lb higher mark (5f, good to firm); the wheels came off afterwards but he had a wind op in October and his reappearance here two weeks ago was more encouraging than the distance beaten would suggest; getting back on faster ground a major positive and a big run would be no surprise.
