Form & Verdict
Proved his stamina when winning this race off 15lb higher last year (good to soft) but has not kicked on this season and was pulled up on soft ground at Exeter last time; very well treated after tumbling down the weights and perhaps the return to this track and the likely better ground may rejuvenate him.

Mostly out of form this season but was reportedly suited by being able to dominate when winning by 8l at favourite track Warwick (3m5f, good to soft) last month; still well handicapped on older form but it's questionable whether things will pan out so favourably for him here.

A three-time winner over fences and ran a cracker when faring best of a few in this field to be third in Sandown's London National a month ago (3m5f, good to soft; copes with softer); looked as though he might win before jumping the last slowly and he's a major player off the same mark.

Form & Verdict
