Sole win came over this far at Leicester last July (good to firm) and he held his form well for the most part afterwards; nothing wrong with his mark if ready to rock after a break.

130,000gns yearling; shaped quite well when over 8l fourth of ten at York (6f, good; 12-1) two weeks ago, best work late on; should have benefited from the experience and can take a step forward here.

Overcame a slipping bit when making all to get off the mark at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) last October on his only run in cheekpieces; they return today, following a good third of eight at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) on reappearance 12 days ago, always front rank; firmly in calculations.

Four wins (1m-1m2f) on the Flat last year and he won on his hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) in October; disappointing at Cheltenham in November but that was a tough race and he's had a break since; still looks feasibly treated in this sphere and he needs a close look on return.

T: B F Brookhouse

Highly productive run of form on the Flat this year from 1m to 1m2f (pretty useful form) and he continued the good work on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) where his jumping improved as the race progressed; holes in the form can be picked (runner-up was behind Eagle Prince the time before) but he wasn't remotely troubled; some doubts about him on soft ground.

Still green and shaped with some encouragement when second of eight over 5f here (good to soft; 3-1) in May; should be suited by this longer trip and may well go one better.

Verdict

The market could be informative, especially where the newcomers are concerned, but SELF PRAISE looks to have been found a suitable opportunity to get off the mark, having finished second here three weeks ago. The consistent Zephina is second choice, ahead of Drafted.[Richard O’Brien]
