Four good-ground chase wins since last October, the first two gained over C&D; only 1lb higher than when gaining narrow success at Newton Abbot (2m5f) in May and wasn't disgraced in much stronger race than this on latest outing; major player.

Not the easiest to predict but it was career win number nine when returning from wind surgery with a narrow success over Romanor at Newton Abbot (2m, good; fine over this far); Worcester was underwhelming, for all that he was a shade out of the weights.

Eight-time winner over fences but has regressed since last summer and weakened into fourth after making the running here (2m5f, good) at end of July; will be fine over today's shorter trip but is 4lb out of the weights and needs recent wind op to have made a difference.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up off 2lb higher for Ron Hodges at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last September and probably not suited by soft ground when pulled up on final two starts for that trainer; back from ten-month absence today and now back with Chris Down; hood refitted; won after a layoff on stable debut in 2019; not ruled out.

Regularly campaigned in France where he's won five times, including his last two; has come up short in a number of British handicaps and he's 13lb out of the weights for this one; making his cross-country debut and all his best form is at up to 2m6f; it looks a big ask.

Prominent racer who won over C&D on his sole visit here and reappeared this season with a good second at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft); a case can be made on that December form, now 3lb lower, but this 10yo has been soundly beaten the last twice on soft ground he should have handled.
