Acts on heavy going; unlucky second to Ginny's Destiny at Cheltenham in December (might have won but for a bad error two out) and turned the tables in the Turners there four weeks ago, beating that opponent by 2l; suited by the stiff 2m4f on both occasions and in between he won over 3m (Grade 2); not obviously crying out for this return to a sharper 2m4f, regardless of ground, but otherwise has the best claims on form and is still improving.

Has raced only on ground softer than good; close second to Ginny's Destiny, who received 3lb, in Cheltenham contest (2m4f) in December and might have won but for making a bad mistake two out; that very good effort is flanked by two easy wins, latest in Grade 2 at Warwick (3m; jumped left at last two fences) where he beat a very useful mare by 14l; bypassed the Brown Advisory on Wednesday to go for this option; leading player.

J: Harry Skelton

Won the 2m5f Grade 2 novice hurdle on heavy ground at this meeting last year; ran away with a graduation chase at Haydock (2m5f, soft) on second start over fences and may well have added a good novice chase at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) four weeks ago but for getting the second last all wrong, as he closed all the way to the line thereafter; has a bit more to prove at 3m (third attempt) but an exciting prospect.
