Lost his unbeaten C&D record (now 2-3) on Tuesday when runner-up to Karl Burke's Little India; remains 4lb above his last winning mark in newly applied cheekpieces.
Won back-to-back races at Wolverhampton (1m½f) during the early part of the winter AW season; much less convincing lately and it remains to be seen how he copes with the delights of Southwell (debut) and the newly applied blinkers.
Back to winning ways when scoring for the first time over 1m (C&D) on his most recent start - beat Elixsoft by 1L; clearly appreciates this Fibresand racing surface and must be considered from a 4lb higher mark.
Faultless on Fibresand (3-3); 4lb higher than when justifying favouritism from the consistent Break The Silence here (7f) six weeks ago; stays this trip without a problem; first attempt in a Class 4 handicap.
Made the frame (beaten 1¼L) behind the progressive Jazz Hands over C&D on New Year's Day; hasn't the most consistent of profiles and remains a maiden (0-11); others preferred.
Kept on well down the centre of the track when winning for the third-time over C&D (boasts a 100% record) on New Year's Day; 3lb claimer Sean Davis is re-employed to remove the subsequent token weights rise; sets the benchmark.
