Unquestionably if everything clicks into place set up, performance wise and he finds the sweet spot with his Suzuki steed, a potential podium finisher this August.
Like team mate David Johnson he has the proven ability and pace around the fabled Mountain Course to mix it with the likes of anticipated front runners such as Dean Harrison and Michael Dunlop.
