Course winner. Thirteen wins from 47 Flat runs, including the Hunt Cup at Thirsk in April. Turned in another good effort when second in an optional claiming event at Pontefract (8f, good) 22 days ago, though rather threw away his chance by hanging badly left.

Smart handicapper who probably needed the run in a first-time hood after 9 months off when fifth in 7f York handicap 29 days ago. Entitled to build on that now back in cheekpieces, though current mark leaves little room for manoeuvre.
