Form & Verdict

1m win (heavy) stood out in his time with Dermot Weld; surged back to form, in fact to a career best, when making most to win well at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) on latest outing; stamina in the family makes this second attempt at 1m4f look viable; up 6lb but in serious calculations.

J: Zak Wheatley

T: Declan Carroll

Best known for front-running exploits at Chester but also third in last year's 1m4f November Handicap at Doncaster; goes well in the mud, as shown again when second to Tashkhan at Chester (2m2f) two weeks ago under Zak Wheatley; that was career-best form and he's respected despite needing better still.

Form & Verdict

Seen mostly over 1m/1m1f this term, with regular minor honours; although 1m2f this year has seen him win (a seller, sole win this term) and been placed, 1m4f in his 34-race career is something new; there have to be doubts.

A standing dish at this track, having won four times over C&D on a variety of going, plus a hurdles win; 4lb higher than his most recent success in a 0-60 here last month; was found out back up at this level latest; more needed.

Has run over C&D on three of his last four starts, for a two wins and a second; up another 4lb since latest, in which he raced on his own on the far side up the straight; that complicates calculations but the other races that day were won up the stands' side and he clearly needs plenty of respect.
