Hughie Morrison’s colt disappointed on debut when finishing last of the field at Goodwood but improved significantly at Salisbury thereafter.

The going that day suggests that the recent heavy rain will suit him once again here and he carries a progressive enough profile to stake strong claims to take this contest.

Alan King’s Tying The Knot should also have more to offer in this sphere after a fine bronze medalist performance at Sandown in September, in a race that has been franked significantly in the aftermath.

Now back in calmer waters, Ralph Beckett’s representative remains off an unchanged mark from his ninth in the Melrose back in August at York.

He has enjoyed some strong stints of form this season, however, and won over this trip at Chester in July.

A relatively lightly-raced campaign, he has gone well fresh before and prevents plenty of value in this return to a smaller field.
