Form & Verdict

Displayed major improvement when winning in a big field in first-time blinkers (retained since) at Southwell (2m4f, good) last November; the headgear didn't have the same effect at Uttoxeter next time but this lightly raced 7yo has had a break and is not discounted today.

Has an up-and-down profile but he was a respectable third over C&D last month and didn't run badly when fifth at Catterick last time; this is a weak race and he makes more appeal than most.

Form & Verdict

Has struggled on his last three starts, including at Catterick two starts ago on good ground that should have suited (it was soft/heavy on the two other occasions); however, if he can rediscover the form he was showing towards the end of last year he has a big chance.
