Comfortable winner at Lingfield (3m5f) ten days ago, to add to last month's Bangor success; Lucy Turner's claim cancels out the 7lb penalty (goes up 9lb in future) so shortlist material but record around here (well beaten over C&D three starts ago) isn't the best.

Disappointed on first two starts this season but returned to form with win at Bangor (3m, heavy) last month; might have been fortunate that day (narrow leader fell at final fence) and is not one to rely upon heavily but should be fine over today's longer trip and ran well on his only previous visit to Lingfield.

Scoped dirty on first run back (Gipsy Lee Rose winner) from wind surgery; stuck on after making a mistake at the final fence on return to action here (2m4f; second) last month; 2lb higher, although that is still 10lb lower than when runner-up in this race 12 months ago; realistic chance.

Not many positives to glean from three heavy defeats since returning from an absence but he's too well handicapped on the best of his hurdle (2-5) and chase (0-11) form to leave out of calculations and this is a drop in class.
