Form & Verdict

Yet to add to his three hurdling wins since switched to this sphere, but he posted good second in 2m4f Uttoxeter handicap in January; he's no forlorn hope off a 2lb lower mark now.

Capitalised upon some significant help from the handicapper when beating three rivals at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in early March but well beaten twice since and not an easy one to predict.

Has similar profile to Ballinsker, in that he needed quite a bit of help from the handicapper before gaining his first chase win; went back up only 2lb for his small-field success at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month and should be fine on today's quicker surface but needs to bounce back from a duff effort three weeks ago.

14l adrift of Keep Rolling when second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in January but opened chasing account in small-field contest at Leicester (2m4f, soft) this month; the winning form probably isn't anything to get too excited about but he's only 2lb higher here and remains very well treated on hurdling form.

More than two years have passed since his last success but he's knocked on the door a few times over fences and hurdles; only four ran when second at Leicester last time but 2m4f would have been on the short side for him; best rules form is on deep ground but he won a point on good.

Ran well when third on seasonal/chase debut at Ayr (3m, good to soft) in November, having raced in a clear lead for most of the way, but again raced too freely when disappointing favourite for a recent maiden hurdle; comes with some risk but, in the short-term at least, today's drop back in trip could be a good move.
