Won a six-runner handicap at Wincanton (2m4f, good) last March and is now 2lb lower; however, he was down the field on his final run last season (2m5f, good) and tailed off on his reappearance at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) in December; this 10yo needs to get back on track.

Placed four consecutive times since breakthrough win at Exeter (2m2f, good to firm) in October and seems pretty versatile regarding ground; competes off new career-high mark here but probably won't be far away.

Ex-Irish pointer who began rules career with three very promising runs, the most notable a win at Exeter (2m5f, soft) last month on second occasion; could easily have more to offer in handicaps; commands respect.

Form & Verdict

Returned from mammoth absence with two disappointing runs this winter but last month's Taunton fifth (2m, good to soft) was a step back in the right direction and today's move back up in trip will suit; sports refitted cheekpieces here and is too well handicapped to rule out.

Dropped in the weights after a dip in his performances and he's got back on track of late with placed efforts on good ground at Wincanton (2m4f) and Kempton (2m5f); beaten further last time (about 8l) but he returned with a wound on his leg; should be a factor.

0-5 and generally disappointing since returning from long absence in December but suggested he might be ready to exploit some significant help from the handicapper when clear second in military riders' race at Wincanton (2m4f, good) last month.

Won easily by 12l over C&D in December and followed up over 2m5f here (also good to soft) a few weeks later; another 6lb higher today but not yet fully exposed, and is evidently in prime form.

Smart hurdler/chaser in his prime but has regressed; will find this easier than the valuable Ascot handicap in which he was pulled up last month but he still needs to turn things around.

Formerly very smart and belatedly returned to winning ways in a first-time visor (with tongue-tie returning) over 2m3f at Market Rasen (good); only 3lb higher but that was three months ago and trainer turns to more new headgear now; no certainty to be as good again but strong contender if he is.
