Fast becoming a regular in this race (narrow winner off a 5lb higher mark on good to soft in 2016); not always fluent on his return to fences at Carlisle (50/1) last month, but that seasonal reappearance should have him spot on for today.
Useful front-runner in his pomp, and he's unlikely to ever have a better opportunity to stamp his authority on a race than in today's contest; dropped 7lb in the handicap since early October.
Strong over fences at Southwell (2m-2m4f) and fair to say he's largely been in better form than his pair of elder rivals during 2018. That said; always appeared ill-at-ease around the tight Norfolk venue Fakenham (2m5f) on his seasonal reappearance.
