11st 2lb

J: Kielan Woods

Won this race off a 7lb higher mark 12 months ago (soft ground); patchy form this season, but has a chance if the ground doesn't dry up too much.

J: Kielan Woods

T: Alex Hales

His best efforts in recent seasons suggest that a thorough stamina test suits him well and, in belated first-time cheekpieces, he was duly doing his best work late in the day over Cheltenham's 3m2f three weeks ago; vulnerable to younger rivals on better terms with the handicapper but has each-way claims.

13yo; inconsistent last season and soundly beaten on reappearance one month ago; however, his best efforts in recent seasons suggest that a thorough stamina test at this trip suits him well and he's also well handicapped if today's first-time headgear receives a positive response.

12yo who was inconsistent last season and pulled up at Sandown last time out in April; however, he's just 1lb higher than when winning at Carlisle (3m, soft) in March and will be all the more interesting if conditions are testing, as he won over 3m4f on heavy ground here in February 2020.
