Acts on good to firm and good to soft; very productive and progressive for Adam Nicol in the last two and a half years and won last term on the two times he's gone up to 2m2f; this season he won a good 1m6f handicap at Musselburgh before his second of six to Coltrane here (2m) on first attempt at a Group race; while the latter was his best form, he received 5lb from the winner and was beaten 5l, which adds up to a tough task today.

Form & Verdict

Consistent and steadily progressive on AW; ended his 2021 campaign with wins at this course and Wolverhampton; has done his winning in cheekpieces, which are now removed on reappearance, but has respectable form without headgear; may improve further in 2022 and has to be feared.

Decent strike-rate on AW and although touched off over 1m4f here last time (cheekpieces left off, back on now), that represented a career-best effort; big chance from just 1lb higher back in distance.

After finishing third behind Friday's Cheltenham winner Camprond at Taunton in March he returned there the following month and won easily over 2m3f on good to firm; would have found good to soft against him when a weakening third at Warwick (2m5f); Flat winner who shouldn't mind dropping in trip.

Raced mainly on turf; close third over C&D last AW start but has been absent since October and record fresh suggests he's likely to need this reappearance run.

8yo whose losing run goes back 19 races to May 2021 and he was merely mid-division at Southwell (1m4f, AW) last time; however, he has a patchy record on AW and has run some good races on turf this term, including when third at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) two starts ago; possible player off career-low mark.

His last win was over two years ago but he's well treated on his old form and has reached the frame in four of his five runs this season; 1lb lower than for his creditable third at Thirsk (1m4f) last time and has each-way claims again back on AW.
