Dual hunter chase winner last spring (once over C&D) and bounced back to form when prevailing in three-way finish to C&D handicap (good) three weeks ago; this 12yo is not sure to be in the same mood again but a 3lb rise ought to be manageable.

T: Jeremy Scott

Had a slice of luck for two hunter chase wins last spring (C&D/2m5f; both on good); better for the run in his two most recent handicaps, including at Warwick last month after 240 days off, and it's hard to know how well treated he is at this level.

Form & Verdict

Finished well to snatch victory in first-time cheekpieces at Warwick (3m1f, good to soft) in January but the effect of the headgear seemed to have waned on his latest start and it's not easy to predict whether he'll fire here.

Held every chance when he fell two out at Wincanton in December but he's unpredictable and hasn't repeated that form since; impossible to know how he'll react to first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) but, off his last winning mark, he can't be discounted.

A 12yo now but in the form of his life this year, winning twice here (3m2f, good/3m1f, good to soft); makes obvious appeal in current mood, despite new career-high mark.

Form & Verdict

Generally disappointing since winning over marathon trip at Taunton (3m4f, soft) for Nick Mitchell a year ago but his defeat in a valuable conditions race over that C&D for Harriet Brown in January can be overlooked; dropped significantly in grade for today's stable debut and will be very dangerous off current mark if perked up by the recent change of scenery.

Two hurdle wins and although a maiden over fences he's shown useful form at times, most recently when chasing home an improver at Market Rasen last February (3m, good to soft; acts well on soft); respectable fourth back from break at Doncaster and easing ground a plus.
