Form & Verdict
Gained hard-fought win on stable debut at Fakenham (3m5f, good to soft) in March and placed twice at Sedgefield since (3m3f, good to soft/good); should be fine on this right-handed track and is likely to make his presence felt again.

Form & Verdict
Dual chase winner last season (2m3f/2m7f); didn't run badly when upped to 3m6f for last month's Highland National at Perth and today's race is less competitive; could still have untapped potential over marathon trips; cheekpieces removed after one use.

Likeable performance in grinding it out over 2m7f at Newcastle (good to soft) in March and he's undergone wind surgery since then; the runner-up was on a hat-trick so a 7lb rise is understandable and wouldn't underestimate; cheekpieces join tongue-tie.
