Nice call from Dave. Original quote: "9 years-old now but still loving his racing - this will be his 83rd career run. Ran well for much of the way last time at Lingfield in a much better race - just faded in the final furlong. Eased in grade here and down another 6lbs to a mark of 80. His last win came off 97 just under a year ago! So certainly looking well handicapped at the moment and has run well here in the past. Likes to blast out and that will hopefully be the plan again here from draw 9, just hoping he doesn't have to use up too much in the early stages from that berth. Is in good order though and we still feel there are races in him - especially off this dropping mark. Small e/w chance."
