T: Nigel Hawke

Placed off 6lb higher over hurdles at Catterick (2m3f, good) in February but he's struggled since including when pulled up on chase debut at Chepstow on penultimate run; record now stands at 0-10 and he has plenty to prove back over fences at this new trip.

Best efforts when making the frame in handicap hurdles at this course and Catterick but the form is modest; pulled up in chase last time (wore cheekpieces, now goes in blinkers); stiff task on ratings.

OR: 90

Form & Verdict
Beat 15 rivals at Wincanton in February 2020 (2m5f, soft) off only a 4lb lower mark; decent run to be beaten under 6l on his return as 2m2f around Stratford would have been on the sharp side; not ruled out.

Hurdles winner two years ago; respectable effort at this course (2m6f, soft; second chase start) last week, leaving the impression he'll benefit from today's first-time cheekpieces; big player off same mark (due to go up 2lb in future).

Form & Verdict
The form of his win here in April (2m, good) has worked out well so wouldn't be a surprise to see him turn things around in first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces).

Pulled up on his last two hurdles outings for Paul Webber but he made a positive start for his new stable when second of 11 in a 1m4f handicap at Southwell (80-1) last month; should stay the longer trip, runs off the same mark and has to be respected.
