Scored off today's mark over 3m5f here (soft) in January and was very respectable fourth in Norfolk National over that trip (good; refitted blinkers) this month; today's drop back to 3m is probably not ideal but she's sure to appreciate the dip back into Class 5 company; respected.

Form & Verdict

Returned to form and capitalised upon some significant help from the handicapper at Doncaster (3m2f, good to soft) five weeks ago; still well treated on older form and looks well worth a shot at today's longer trip but it's hard to predict whether he'll be in the right mood again.

Form & Verdict

Won off 11lb higher here (3m, good to soft) last March but has become very inconsistent in recent years; pulled up in consecutive chases in the autumn and tailed off when reverting to hurdling on Boxing Day; needs to respond very well to the first-time blinkers.

A bit more like it when third in an amateurs' handicap chase at Fakenham on New Year's Day (3m5f, soft), but the positive effects of the blinkers debuted there weren't sustained; no trip or ground issues, but surprising if nothing proves better; 8lb out of the handicap.
