Mr Demister looks to have been saved for a summer campaign and at 8/1 is taken to make a winning comeback in the 2.55 at Fakenham today.
The gelding has not been seen in action since winning a handicap at Wincanton on quick going last October on just his second start over fences.
He improved out of all recognition that day, travelling well at the rear of the field before making good headway from four home and staying on strongly from the last to get up an beat El Diego by a neck.
It was an effort which suggested he had more to offer, and a 5lb rise to a mark of 86 could be lenient if he continues to progress as expected.
The lightly raced nine-year-old clearly relishes the ground he will encounter today, and connections look to have saved him for it.
Their patience could well be rewarded, as this contest severly lacks any strength in depth and many of his rivals find it hard to win or have attitude problems.
He is by far the leats exposed in the field, and with Lucy Gardner taking 7lbs of his back he must go well off a featherweight.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Mr Demister (8/1 bet365, BetVictor – BOG)
