Form & Verdict

3-9 over fences, latest success coming at Lingfield (2m7f, heavy) in December; however, beaten 16l when fourth off revised mark at Sedgefield (wore cheekpieces) last time and may need a career best if he's to return to winning ways; has form over 3m2f and will probably stay today's longer trip.

Dual chase winner last season, latterly at Bangor (3m5f, soft); not in same form this term but might have found good ground too lively when last of four finishers at Wetherby (3m7f) this month; might be the answer.

Tends to race rather lazily but came from off the pace to win this race by 16l last year (soft ground; second-time cheekpieces) and has made late headway on both outings this season (3m6f/3m; no headgear); no surprise if he makes a bold defence of his crown with the cheekpieces now refitted.

Low-mileage 9yo; thereabouts in his first runs on returning from a long absence (all at about 3m) and he was the market leader when tipping up at the first 17 days ago at Bangor; that was over 3m5f so a good test around here should be up his street.
