Continues to fall in the weights and sneaks into this Class 4 handicap off a mark of 85; only third of four (beaten 3¼L) when sent off at 5-4f at Ffos Las (2m, good to firm) last month.
Won three on the bounce earlier in the year, kicking off the winning sequence on Tapeta at Newcastle (1m4f+); has no issues with this 2m trip; 8lb above his last winning mark.
Won at this track in June (1m2f, good) and again when clinging on to score by a head at Carlisle (1m3f, good to firm) the following month; up the weights with stamina to prove over a new trip.
Has taken his form to a whole new level since introduced to handicapping (211); C&D winner who seeks the hat-trick following a 3¼L Class 6 romp at Nottingham (2m, soft) a fortnight ago; faces a sterner test but a 5lb rise can be considered lenient.
