Capable hurdler/chaser who got off the mark at the sixth time of asking on the Flat when comfortably winning a 1m6f Yarmouth handicap last week. Turned out under a penalty, is in good heart and looks sure to run his race.
Not at his best recently and all three wins have been achieved over significantly shorter distances. That said, he was only just beaten on the AW at this venue in December and return to that form off 5lb lower would give him every chance.
Suggested that a return to winning ways might not be too far away when narrowly beaten at Kempton last week. Has to be respected off the same handicap mark, but it's a long time since he got his head in front.
