Form & Verdict

Now 12lb lower than for his Yarmouth win last September but he hasn't come close to that level in four runs in 2021; drops in class and has the inside stall so some will be prepared to give him another chance.

Admirable 8yo who has won four of his last five starts and was as good as ever when making all for a clearcut win at Leicester (5f, good to firm) 11 days ago; a 6lb rise for that success looks fair and he's a big player again in his bid for a four-timer.

Three turf wins this year and he has also run well at this track in the past; solid effort in a big field at Bath when last seen six weeks ago; Adam Kirby booked and a tongue-tie now tried for the first time; one to take seriously.

Six AW wins elsewhere but was perfectly at home in his sole C&D run, when a persevering third in a classified during February (little between him and the fourth Moorgate on these terms); probably needs a bit extra off 4lb higher than his 5f handicap win at Kempton in January.

At the veteran stage, but this nine-time course winner is still more than capable at this level as he showed when twice runner-up off this mark over C&D at the start of the year; did win fresh in his younger days, but more recent evidence suggests he may just need this after 73 days off.
