Well beaten on most starts, the exception being his 25-1 win over fences at Exeter (2m3f, good) in October; not seen since lesser effort the following month and the percentage call is to oppose him here.

Form & Verdict

A maiden after 12 starts and doesn't tend to find a huge amount when the chips are down but comes here after two creditable chase runs this year, the latter when second at Taunton (2m5f, good to soft) last month; should be okay over today's trip; probably in the mix again.

J: Rex Dingle

T: Anthony Honeyball

Everything fell into place for Plumpton win (2m1f, good) in February but she's not the easiest to win with and her finishing effort was weak there last time (2m3f); the blinkers tried then are soon discarded and the likelihood of a strong pace up front should benefit her; being 12lb out of the handicap makes life difficult.

0-5 over fences and 0-15 overall; yet to run a bad race this season and seems versatile regarding ground but was just a respectable third at Ludlow (2m, soft) last month and needs to find something extra.

0-10 over fences and 0-22 overall; looked unlucky not to open account here in December (2m2f, good; in front when unseating rider at last fence) but was behind two of today's rivals when only fifth here five weeks ago and his tendency to make jumping errors is always a worry.

Runner-up over C&D (good) in November and was 1l ahead when unseating at the final fence over C&D (good) in December; fell four out at Hereford last time and there are risks attached in view of his jumping, but he can play a leading role granted a clear round.

Still a maiden and not the safest of jumpers but looked the likely winner when unseating rider at the final fence in Taunton handicap (2m2f, good) just before Christmas; however, now 5lb higher and an error-free round again isn't guaranteed.

0-15 under all codes but earns very good marks for his consistency over fences this season; second to a progressive rival here (2m4f, soft) this month and will also be suited by today's shorter trip; leading chance.

Longstanding maiden who was disappointing at Exeter last month and it's hard to be confident after that; however, he went there on the back of two good seconds (2m4f/2m, good/soft) and it's possible he'll be able to bounce back in first-time cheekpieces and a reapplied tongue-tie; not written off.
