Form & Verdict

Pulled up on final run last season and has also struggled on both outings this term; however, his win at Chepstow (3m6f, good) last March is an appealing performance in today's context and perhaps the first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces) will prompt a return to form; versatile ground-wise.

Seemingly boosted by first-time visor when winning North Yorkshire Grand National at Catterick (3m6f, good to soft) in January but was struggling from fairly early stage (albeit from out of the weights) at Uttoxeter last month and it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task in first-time blinkers here.

Joe Anderson's 7lb claim is welcomed when he's 10lb out of the weights; didn't go unbacked in a first-time visor at Catterick last time (3m6f, good to soft) and he turned on the turbo late on to get up near the line; has won on heavy; could have some say.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten at Kelso (4m, soft) last month but ran well for a long way, and was a good second at Fontwell (3m3f, good) the time before; his claims will be boosted the more the ground dries out and a bold bid is possible now back down in trip.

Pulled up at Haydock (3m4f, heavy) a fortnight ago but barely any of the runners handled the conditions; prior to that he'd kept on for a fair third at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) and today's marathon trip probably suits better; wins have come on heavy-good to soft; could have a part to play.
