Won heavy-ground Irish bumper last March and came good over hurdles with emphatic success on handicap debut at Ayr (2m5f, heavy) on Sunday; runs without a penalty here and ought to be very difficult to beat.

J: Derek Fox

T: Lucinda Russell

Dual hurdle winner and has made a solid start over fences this season in winning two 3m northern handicaps on soft ground, both fairly decisively; being 4lb wrong here means he's 12lb higher than at Ayr, but he's very much going the right way; all his improvement has come on soft/heavy ground; stable won this last year with their Cheltenham Festival hero Corach Rambler.

Seeks a hat-trick following convincing wins here (2m5f, heavy) and more latterly at Bangor (2m7f, soft), when unpenalised; up in grade and competes from a 9lb higher mark, but will handle the forecast heavy ground; solid credentials and clearly a progressive individual.

Form & Verdict

Put in good front-running shift when fifth of 14 at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) last month and will be fine over this longer trip but hasn't won since 2017 and his younger stablemate Green Vault has much stronger claims.

Gave it a good shot from the front when second at Bangor (2m7f, soft) in January and should be okay on today's quicker ground but his latest run was disappointing and he's nothing like the force of old; others preferred.
