Finished at the back of the field on his return three weeks ago, at Newton Abbot over 3m 2f but had gone well until the latter stages and needed the race.
Down a couple of pounds to 129 today just a pound shy of his last win five outings ago back in October.
Should go well and could be good each way value off this mark.
