Raced mainly at around 2m but returned to form with clearcut success when upped to 2m4f at Lingfield (good to soft) 11 days ago and is now 6-20 over fences; escapes a penalty here (due a 5lb rise) and ought to cope with the slower ground; obvious contender.

10yo who is not easy to predict but he shaped as though he needed the run at Huntingdon on his recent return and he's 2-3 over C&D, including a win in this race (off 3lb higher) last year; looks interesting back at this track and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Looked promising during 2018-19 season, winning a bumper and runner-up over 2m1f on his hurdling debut; disappointing since and well beaten both starts over fences last term, but he has tumbled in the weights and needs monitoring in the market after a year off.

Won two in a row (good/heavy) prior to finishing second in this last year (good to soft); he's 5lb lower than 12 months ago and is one to watch in the betting, but this 11yo has been tailed off/pulled up on his two runs this season and a major turnaround is required.

Back-to-back wins at Ffos Las (3m, good) and Taunton (2m7f, heavy) last March and only 3lb higher than for the latest of those; however, he's an 11yo now and his reappearance was underwhelming even if that was over 2m4f.

Longstanding maiden who was disappointing at Exeter last month and it's hard to be confident after that; however, he went there on the back of two good seconds (2m4f/2m, good/soft) and it's possible he'll be able to bounce back in first-time cheekpieces and a reapplied tongue-tie; not written off.

Dual point winner, lightly raced under rules (won 3m hurdle last autumn); no promise when pulled up on chasing debut three weeks ago and dropping back to 2m is far from certain to suit.
