T: Sheila Lewis

Runner-up in Worcester maiden hurdle last May on his final run for Nigel Twiston-Davies but tailed off in handicaps on his first two runs for this yard and is hard to fancy on the back of those.

Second in Worcester maiden (2m4f, good) for Nigel Twiston-Davies last May but suffered heavy defeat on stable/handicap debut in October and it's hard to know what to expect after another break; tongue-tie back on.

Form & Verdict
Left Grace Harris after two disappointing runs last winter and was pulled up on first two starts for current stable; ran well to a point at Uttoxeter (2m, good) 11 days ago but was beaten about 28l in the end and further evidence of a return to form is needed; cheekpieces refitted.

Seems badly to have lost his way this year; hinted at possible return to form when third (albeit well held in the end) in first-time visor here (2m, good) this month but his stamina for today's trip is not assured and he remains a risky option.

Uttoxeter winner (for Grace Harris) 13 months ago but downhill after; visored for the first time when third at Hereford on Tuesday (looked well beaten but rallied late on) which offers some hope.

Ran well to a point and hinted at possible return to form at Uttoxeter last month but pulled up at Chepstow a fortnight ago and now has it all to prove again; visor tried here.

Form & Verdict
Seemingly aided by refitted cheekpieces on the Flat this year and continued the good work when keeping on strongly for close third over hurdles at Exeter (2m1f) this month; contender if suited by today's move back up in trip.

Maiden under both codes but he has run well on occasions this year on the Flat and he was twice runner-up over hurdles before struggling in a couple of handicaps (tongue-tie/blinkers); cheekpieces, which have helped on the Flat, could make a difference back jumping.
