Low-mileage 6yo; drew nicely clear to open account at Uttoxeter (3m, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in February and also ran well when second at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good; no cheekpieces) last month; cheekpieces back on today; good chance.

Three-time chase winner but not since 2019; didn't run badly when back over fences in refitted cheekpieces at Taunton (2m7f, good) last month and will be fine over today's longer trip but others appeal more.

Things went swimmingly in September, hat-trick at 3m2f (good and good to soft); not had the same momentum since but just 2lb above the latest win and a revival is on the cards at some stage.

Hat-trick in September (all under Toby Wynne) and may have been feeling his exertions when well beaten soon after; still on a viable mark and stays well so hard to dismiss on return from a short break.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite when dropped back to 2m5f recently and now 0-7 over fences but was placed three consecutive times beforehand (3m-3m2f; behind Motown Lake on latest occasion) and runs off career-low mark today; usual visor left off; tongue-tie fitted; can't be ruled out.

Free-going front-runner; still 7lb higher than when winning in the autumn but gave it a good shot when third at Uttoxeter (3m, good) last month; unexposed over this sort of trip and could take some catching; swaps usual cheekpieces for first-time blinkers.
