HeyhoeDoktor Glaz finds it hard to win but holds a sound chance of securing an elusive first success over hurdles in the 4.35 at Wetherby on Tuesday. This is a poor race that won’t take much winning.

At Carlisle about a month ago, the seven-year-old shaped quite nicely before lack of fitness seemed to tell and he faded into third place at the Lakeland venue.

Two years ago, Rose Dobbin’s charge ran well when third off a 15lb higher mark in a stronger contest at Kelso, and if he puts his best foot forward he should be in with a shout.
