12st 7lb

J: David Noonan

T: Nigel Hawke

Made all to win comfortably by over 7l at Newton Abbot (2m2f, good) last week and is now 8-13 since joining Nigel Hawke last year; only due to go up 6lb for that but takes his chance under a 7lb penalty anyway; likely to make a bold bid.

J: Kieren Buckley

T: Nigel Hawke

Has won seven out of 12 starts since joining Nigel Hawke and returned from a winter break with an emphatic Taunton novice win last month; no disgrace when beaten by a subsequent winner here since and could prove hard to catch now reverting to a handicap.

11st 12lb

J: Kieren Buckley

T: Nigel Hawke

Proved a real money-spinner since joining Nigel Hawke last spring, winning five chases and two novice hurdles; this is much tougher than the race he won at Taunton (2m, good) on his return last week but he put in a dominant display to score by 18l and it wouldn't be a surprise if he made another bold bid under a double penalty.

Form & Verdict
Winning pointer; belated career under rules but has shown fine attitude in narrow victories over C&D and at Stratford (made most in both); 14lb penalty but obvious appeal; cheekpieces worn latest removed.
