In first-time blinkers he got off the mark at the 19th attempt in a big field over C&D three weeks ago (good to firm; made most); back up 5lb he remains well treated on last season's best form; key player if the headgear maintains its positive effect.

Blinkers have turned things around and he has won his last two starts, both under prominent rides in 6f handicaps at Thirsk on good to firm; 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.
