Strawman is on a losing run of 14 that stretches back to June 2022 but he has run well the last twice, finishing a close-up third at Carlisle on his penultimate start and then missing out by only a head at Thirsk last time. Strawman did well to get so close after being held up in such a modestly-run race, leaving the impression that he's in good enough form to capitalise on a fall in the weights. He has edged up 1 lb since his latest effort but remains 4 lb below his last winning mark - a victory that was achieved over this course and distance.
