On a losing run and after a respectable first effort after wind surgery he's struggled in handicaps over fences and hurdles; tongue-tie a new addition that may help but others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Seven defeats for Tim Vaughan included a heavy defeat over fences; however, he made all in a 2m5f Hereford handicap hurdle last week (good to soft) on his first run for Evan Williams and returns to chasing off the same mark; unlikely to be troubled by this drop in distance; was placed in a point on heavy, so conditions shouldn't bother him.

Bumper promise for Nicky Henderson; no worthwhile form over hurdles but only had the three goes (two for this yard) and, as a half-sister to Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster, she could easily make a better chaser; tongue-tie a first for her handicap debut and quite interesting despite being out of the weights.
