Form & Verdict

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.

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.

Off the mark under rules when slogging through the mud in a near-3m handicap chase at Lingfield in December 2021 (2lb lower today); not so good since (twice at 3m5f) and had heavy defeats in two of those three starts; had wind surgery since, however, and that win also came first time out last season.
