This is definitely his optimum trip and he has been far from disgraced the last twice. This is a drop in grade, and he is not fully exposed in handicaps. Should have a major part to play in proceedings.
Hit the crossbar on each of his last three starts, and beginning to prove expensive to follow (sent off short-priced favourite the last twice). Can't knock her consistency though, and she could find some improvement on this first run over 1m.
Been given time off since something obviously went amiss when he ran too bad to be true at Ascot (1m; good to firm) in July. Posted an encouraging effort on handicap debut at Newcastle (1m; standard to slow) before that, and is worth another chance.
Returned to calmer waters after finding the demands of a red hot handicap at the Ebor Festival at York (1m; good to firm) all too much. Consistently making the frame prior to that, and so has place claims back in a Class 4.
Made light work of odds-on favouritism (4/6f) when comfortably winning a four-runner affair over C&D. Upped in grade now off a career high mark, and isn't open to as much progress as others. Not discounted though.
Showed marked improvement from below-par handicap debut when successful over this C&D last month (shedding his maiden tag in the process). Up 5lb and this is a better race, but still retains plenty of potential.
